These rates reflect a democratic process initiated by workers who organize with Casa Latina's support. We strive to provide a place where members can look for work with dignity and respect and also have faith that their pay will reflect a hard day's work. To learn more about our mission click here.
Casa Latina members believe their hard work should be reflected in their pay scale. Work categories have minimum hours out of fairness for workers who seek daily work.
Note: the 5-hour minimum for hauling, moving, and demolition and digging will change from $100 to $110 on April 1st; the rate for additional hours will change from $20/hour to $22/hour.
