For parents and caregivers, the ability to pay bills, maintain stable housing, access health care, and keep their children in school can be severely affected by unfair labor practices. Long-standing inequities in workplace violations by employers have been experienced by low-wage, Latinx, Black, and female workers — and low-wage essential workers are often forced to choose between their health and their livelihood.
On February 28, 2023, we gathered a panel of experts to explore how systemic solutions and collaborative partnerships can promote enforcement strategies that serve workers and their communities. View our webinar Policymaking for Fair Labor Practices: Equitable Enforcement & Worker Rights to Support Healthy Families to learn about policy interventions that promote safe and stable employment and advance an economy that supports the needs of children and families.
