What’s a Day Labor Center?
Day Labor Centers: Where our community goes to hire our neighbors
Day Laborer Centers connect small businesses and homeowners with skilled day laborers for a variety of services, ensuring fair wages and good working conditions. The hiring process is easy, convenient and dignified. Our Centers are comprised of hard working men and women who are dedicated both to supporting their families and to being active contributors to life in our community.
Available amenities and services typically include restrooms, drinking water, places to sit, telephones, classrooms, outreach to employers and parking facilities.
Day Laborer Centers are a Win-Win for both Employer & Worker
For Employers, worker centers:
- Organize and normalize the hiring of day laborers, monitor worker quality and provide opportunities for worker incorporation into the mainstream economy through employment assistance and, sometimes, skills training.
For Day Laborers, worker centers:
- Monitor the actions of employers, increase the transparency of the hiring process and provide an institutional foundation for holding employers accountable for workplace abuses.
