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 $30 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.

House cleaning; basic and deep cleaning, move in-move out; laundry/folding/ironing; party and event helper.
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.
