BUILDING WORKER POWER
We believe all workers deserve to experience worker power, solidarity, visibility, and healthy lives.
Through organizing, policy advocacy, capacity building, and services, the Los Angeles Worker Center Network builds upon over a decade of coordinated activities among the region’s worker centers to improve conditions in key low-wage industries.
We leverage worker centers’ combined strengths, membership base, and industry expertise to bolster the organizing and leadership of workers.
We build power and develop worker leadership by organizing with Black, immigrant, and refugee workers and other workers of color in the Los Angeles region.
What We Do
From grassroots organizing to strategic advocacy at the city, county, and state level, we strive to advance worker leadership and grow the capacity of local worker centers.
Learn more about our network’s role in stopping wage theft and championing policy initiatives designed to improve the lives of workers.

Wage Theft & Homelessness
Concept Paper: Labor Standards Enforcement Paves the Way for a New LA
The dual crisis of homelessness and wage theft is particularly acute in Los Angeles. Wage theft dramatically compounds the risk of housing insecurity and homelessness for Angelenos, particularly those of color, women, and immigrants.
In our newest concept paper, we propose changes to lead the way toward a “New LA,” where residents can afford dignified housing, high-road employers play a valued role in the local economy while violators face strict penalties, and government agencies cut red tape facing victims of labor violations.
