Worker centers provide laborers with bathrooms and an escape from the elements, help them fight wage theft and dangerous working conditions, and connect them with opportunities for career advancement. With support from The Trust, Catholic Charities is helping day laborers in the Bronx assert their rights and stay safe during the pandemic.

And the Center for Migration Studies is working with day laborers in Staten Island and Brooklyn to study the needs of immigrant workers in the construction sector. Finally, a grant to Pro Bono Net helped create a bilingual app that workers can use to track their hours and ensure that they receive correct compensation.
