Low-Wage Worker Organizing

The SJLC has worked to support the Coalition to Respect Every Worker (CREW), to advocate for the rights of low-wage workers in Philadelphia. CREW is mostly comprised of worker member organizations that have been at the forefront of advocating for strengthening laws that help protect workers, such as paid sick leave, fair scheduling, and anti-wage theft protections. With members of CREW it released Enforcing Wins by Philly Workers: Transforming Laws on Paper into Real Change, focused on advocating for the improved implementation and enforcement of worker protection laws on-the-books. After the pandemic hit, it helped to create a COVID-19 Fact Sheet  about the legal rights of workers.
