Working Families Have Won Better Working Conditions In 2014

WJPMemberWhat a difference, a year can make, and more importantly a safe job with a living wage.

Thanks to our supporters and allies, the past year proven brighter for hundreds of low-wage immigrant families within the WJP community.

In 2014, we have bettered workplace standards, increased hourly wages by 33%, and taught English, safety training, and collective bargaining to house cleaners and construction worker who are part of the Worker’s Justice Project (WJP). We brought economic justice to the community with the recovery of $40K in stolen wages.

The larger community has benefitted as well. We created 1,300 jobs in Bensonhurst, generated over half of million dollars in income. As we look back on the past year with gratitude we look ahead with hope and the expectation  that our work will have even a greater impact in 2015.
