29novAll DaySupport the Cabricanecos Campaign on Giving Tuesday

Event Details

In early 2021, immigrant demolition construction workers from Cabrican, Guatemala, approached LWC because they were victims of abusive bosses. The workers decided to organize because they had to endure abuses in the workplace such as wage theft, lack of adequate PPE at work, especially important when working in old-building demolitions, no access to paid sick leave or health assistance and an irregular schedule. The workers, many who are indigenous people from Guatemala, started to come to meetings with LWC and eventually started their leadership training at the Leadership Institute. Although the workers have approached their managers and bosses, their workplace conditions have not improved.
