ADVOCACY ISSUE - Worker Justice

We work with immigrant community groups and unions to transform employment practices that have excluded immigrant workers.

ADVOCACY OVERVIEW

Immigrant workers in Washington state are living under outdated and racialized immigration and employment systems that offer few reliable protections or opportunities to secure better paying, more permanent work. Agricultural workers, primarily immigrants, have been historically excluded from basic employment protections like overtime, a legacy of the Jim Crow era. Workers in the state under the H-2A visa program are subjected to intimidation and retaliation.
