The Rio Grande Valley has the lowest paid workers in the country. Protections are scarce and exploitation is widespread. But this is only part of the story. There is also a rich tradition of labor organizing. Courageous organizations have fought to improve working conditions and pay. Fuerza del Valle is part of this struggle to make the valley a better place to live for all people.
The economic recession for low wage workers demands we do two things at once. Deal with the injustices workers deal on a day to day basis and build power to win major labor policy changes. Fuerza del Valle defends workers’ rights and fights for economic and social justice. Our current campaigns are to stop wage theft, to improve the rights of domestic workers, and to improve the pay and safety of construction workers.
