COVID-19 Updates

Casa Latina is now taking work orders for outside work and house cleaning services. New health safety protocols and requirements for employers have been implemented to follow Governor Inslee’s “Safe Start” COVID-19 Phased Plan.

In order for Casa Latina to implement additional health safety protocols, employers need to make reservations 24 hours ahead of time.

New Casa Latina guidelines to protect workers and communities:

  • Temperature of worker-members will be taken every morning.
  • 6 feet social distancing required at all times.
  • There will be a limited amount of workers that are being transported through our Casa Latina shuttles with 50% capacity.
  • Plexiglas dividers will separate and protect workers in shuttles.
  • Additional sanitizing stations are placed around our Casa Latina campus.
  • Jobs will be delegated by phone instead of in-person.
  • Only Worker members with jobs will be called to the worker center.

New Requirements for Employers:

  • Practice social distancing.
  • Ensure frequent and adequate hand washing.
  • Use disposable gloves to prevent transmission on tools or other items that are shared.
  • Any adult individual or child present during the time domestic services are in progress should wear at least a face covering to avoid risk of community transmission.
  • Whenever possible, the employer and any other member of the household should be in a different space to limit contact with the worker.
  • Inform Casa Latina if anyone is exposed to, experiences symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19.

Casa Latina’s mission is to empower Latino immigrants through educational and economic opportunities. By hiring a worker from our Day Workers’ Center you provide a worker with a way to support him or herself and his or her family. We are a no-commission center, which means that our workers keep 100% of the pay. Additionally, the democratically agreed upon guidelines for participating in the center prohibit drug and alcohol use and encourage workers to complete specialty trainings and English classes. These guidelines help to make your experience as an employer more enjoyable.

The workers have collectively developed a salary scale. The hourly wage starts at $22 per hour and may be higher, depending on the difficulty of the job and the skills required. Tips are always welcome. For more information, please view our pay scale table above. The staff at the Day Workers’ Center can help you identify the minimum wage for different jobs.

The workers keep 100% of their pay. Casa Latina does not take a commission or receive any money from its workers. Transportation fees are paid to Casa Latina and help offset the cost of the logistical support. Casa Latina is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and the cost of running the Day Workers’ Center is covered by donations. By hiring a worker the salary you provide will truly help that worker. And by making a donation to Casa Latina, you can help hundreds more access the employment and education opportunities we provide. Please click here if you would like to make a donation.

The workers are not contractors. You will need to provide all tools, materials, and safety equipment for the workers you employ. Click here for more information for homeowners and business owners. Additional information for employers of domestic help is available here.

You are responsible for providing a safe work environment, proper tools, and safety equipment for your workers. You can find more information about your responsibilities below this page.

There is no transportation fee to hire a Casa Latina worker when you pick them up from our office. However, for a small fee we will send a worker to your door.

Workers can be dropped off at your home or worksite for a small fee with our van service. This allows for a more accurate arrival time and is most convenient for our workers. Rates according to distance from Casa Latina:

Within the City of Seattle: $15 for 1 worker; $20 for 2+ workers
Outside the City of Seattle: $25 for 1+ workers

Workers can also arrive at your home or worksite via public transportation. Workers arriving by public transportation will have a more flexible arrival time. **This fee supports logistical assistance for the workers. These rates apply:

Within Seattle city limits: $5
Outside Seattle city limits: $10 Note: this service allows for workers to arrive to a Park and Ride or Transit Center near your home or worksite. You are responsible for providing the workers with transportation from the Park and Ride or Transit center to your home or worksite. We can only guarantee delivery of workers in Seattle, Mercer Island, or Bellevue in the 98006 area code. If you live outside these areas, we will get back to you to make transportation arrangements.

We have workers of all trades and experience. Besides construction and manual labor, we can help with moving services, cleaning, handiwork, painting, landscaping, etc. Workers can be contracted for a half day (five hour minimum), a day, a week, or permanently.

Our workers primarily come from a variety of Spanish-speaking countries. They are men and women of all ages and trades. Some are newly arrived; others have been in Seattle for longer. All are seeking day work to support themselves and their families.

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 by working as a group, they have a better chance of being hired and being treated with respect.

Casa Latina does not employ the workers whom we refer; when you make the decision to hire them, you are their employer and they are your employees. Thus, while we do our best to only refer workers who are skilled and dependable, we cannot and do not guarantee that worker performance will always meet your expectations. Casa Latina is not responsible for any such failure in worker performance or for any damage or injuries that could conceivably occur during the performance of the work you have hired these workers to perform. We do welcome your feedback on the experience you have in hiring workers from Casa Latina. You can contact us here.

1) Write a positive review on Yelp.
2) You can evaluate your worker(s) by contacting us on the phone at 206.956.0779 x3 or by email here. We welcome constructive criticism and positive feedback.
3) Make a donation. Casa Latina is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and the workers keep 100% of their pay. The cost of running the Day Workers’ Center is covered by donations. By hiring a worker you truly help that worker, and by making a donation, you help hundreds more. Please click here if you would like to make a donation.
4) Volunteer. The Day Workers’ Center is staffed with volunteers. More information about volunteering is available here.

Safety Information for Employers

All Casa Latina workers have received Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training on health and safety in the work place and have their own personal protective equipment including work boots, rubberized cotton gloves, safety glasses, dust mask, and ear plugs. They also receive training on safe moving techniques and yardwork. Workers required to lift 50 to 100 lbs. have passed a strength and agility test.

However, training workers is not enough to ensure workplace safety. Employers must also understand and promote safety. Many employers see workplace safety as a nuisance—or simply don’t understand their responsibilities—but workplace safety doesn’t have to be a burden.

In an effort to promote work place safety for Casa Latina workers, under a grant from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), we have developed educational materials for employers looking for easy preventative measures that ensure the safety of their workers. Our guidelines help employers promote safe work procedures, and most of our tips and tricks (such providing water when the work is done on a hot day) are easy to implement with a little planning and forethought.

Each Casa Latina worker will arrive to your work site with the following personal protective equipment:

If additional tools and safety equipment are required for the job, they must be provided by the employer. This includes carpentry equipment and safety equipment such as hammers and knee pads.
  • Make sure the work area has good ventilation
    Open windows or doors for ventilation. Fans and extractors should be provided if windows or doors do not open.
  • Make sure all power tools are in good working condition
    Before your worker arrives, check all power tools and extension cords for wear-and-tear or damage (such as exposed wires or dull blades). Make sure all extension cords have a ground prong (the third pin). Do not use damaged power tools or extension cords.
