Our Work

As a worker center, WDP members develop protective legislation, directly address serious workplace problems through direct action and legal tactics, and generally improve their working conditions. WDP members fight to win fair, safe jobs and become effective advocates for themselves and their communities.

Employment & Legal Services

Employment and Legal Services help low-wage workers directly address serious workplace problems through legal services and direct action.
