Ensuring Workers Earn Fair Wages
Low-wage workers are critical to California’s economy, and yet they have limited influence on economic conditions that affect their families and communities. Beginning in 2016, the James Irvine Foundation administered pilot grants to 15 nonprofits specializing in worker organizing and policy to learn from a diverse array of strategies.
Engage R+D partnered with the Foundation to answer the following questions:
How is the current economic and political environment affecting low-wage workers?
What are promising strategies to ensure that workers get paid the wages they deserve?
What capacities do nonprofits need, individually and collectively, to support workers?
