The Graton Day Labor Center is a member led organization. This means that the workers set their own wages and terms of employment much like they would if they were in a union. The jobs are distributed democratically in a system that members have developed since the inception of the hiring site in 2004. It is fair and it is democratic; most importantly, it honors the rights and dignity of the workers.
Day laborers and domestic workers provide essential labor to our employer clients. Basic home and property maintenance tasks like yard clean up, weed eating, window washing, moving, gutter cleaning, housecleaning, digging, planting, pruning, and harvesting, are the most common jobs dispatched at the center. Our bilingual staff work hard to ensure that each job negotiation is clear, correct and transparent so that employer and worker expectations are the same.
As a non-profit organization we depend on the support of the entire community to ensure that we can sustain this important work.
Our organization is a key voice for the rights of immigrant workers in Sonoma County. We ask that you consider making a donation to the Graton Day Labor Center.
We also lead the UndocuFund for Wildfire Relief along with our partners the North Bay Organizing Project and North Bay Jobs with Justice. In the aftermath of the Kincade fires we are working to provide financial relief to low wage undocumented workers who lost days of work due to the fire. The Huffington Post recently published an article detailing the effects climate change has on job loss in low wage worker industries. You can donate to the UndocuFund at www.undocufund.org.
Once again, thank you for supporting our work!
