Back to Frequently Asked Questions

- Who are the workers at the Center?
Primarily, our workers are from a variety of Spanish-speaking countries. They are men and women of all ages and trades. Some are newly arrived; others have been here longer but have recently become unemployed.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions

- Why do the workers choose the Day Workers' Center?
The workers are here because they need work. Out of respect for themselves and others, they prefer to be contracted from an organized center instead of waiting in the streets. Many believe that together, working within a group, they have a better chance of being hired for work and being treated with respect, as they respect our community and employers.
