Final Report Launch & Panel Discussion
This event launches the final report from the Working for Dignity: Low-Wage Worker Study of Santa Cruz County, produced by the UCSC Center for Labor Studies, and a community conversation on economic justice. The event will include a panel discussion on the state-wide campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, featuring local workers and small business owners, community organizations, and experts on the minimum wage. A wide range of community groups working on issues such as affordable housing, wage theft & legal services, paid family and sick leave, voter registration, and immigration reform will be on hand with information about services – and how you can get involved in the fight for economic justice.
The Center for Labor Studies and the Economic Justice Alliance are proud to co-sponsor this free, public event along with the Chicano Latino Research Center, Division of Social Sciences, University of California Humanities Research Institute, California Rural Legal Assistance, Inc., Day Worker Center of Santa Cruz County, and Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History.
