Uniting workers, transforming low-wage industries, rebuilding the American middle class.

 

The US economy is broken.

Simply put, we’ve become a low-wage nation where workers invest hours into jobs with little hope of providing for their basic needs. The result has been a social and economic crisis marked most distinctly by the recession of 2008. During the depths of the recession 24% of jobs were classified as low-wage or ones where workers earned roughly $47,000 or less to support a family of 4. The daunting fact is that the percentage of low-wage jobs is projected to double to over 48% by 2020.

 

The Workers Lab is the 21st century lab for worker justice.

 

The Workers Lab will provide financial resources, training, and technical assistance to community organizers & entrepreneurs to:

  • Achieve the necessary power to raise wages and standards for working people,
  • Achieve sufficient scale to impact workers across sectors, industries, and geographies, and
  • Achieve self-sufficient revenue models that are adequate to allow the models to sustain themselves in the long run.

 

 

The Workers Lab is key to uniting workers, transforming low-wage industries, and creating a new era of shared prosperity!
