Happy May Day!

Happy May Day!

This May Day we're celebrating workers the way we celebrate every day: by sharing and creating resources that communities can use to navigate and advocate for their rights!

We've pulled some resources from our archives that uplift worker rights and worker power:

Healthy Salons for All: a guide for nail salon workers and customers on safe workplace practices and important worker rights.

¡No Me Han Pagado!: an illustrated, Spanish-language guide to help day laborers protect themselves from wage theft. 

Stand Up to Clean Up!: a guide to help house cleaners and other domestic workers advocate for safer working conditions and better wages.

We Own It: a fold-out poster that breaks down how worker co-ops work, the steps for starting or joining one, and shows what a day on the job looks like for a worker-owner.

Vendor Power!:a fold-out poster in English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, and Bengali that deocdes the rules and regulations for NYC's 10,000 street venders so they can understand their rights and avoid unnecessary fines.

En El Campos De Los Impuestos: a visual guide to help migrant farmworkers file for and gain access to the benefits of taxes, regardless of immigration status.

We Care!: a visual guide to the Domestic Workers' Bill of Rights that breaks down employees' rights (regardless of immigration status) and provides guidance to employers on providing a supportive work environment. The guide is available in five languages – English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, Nepali, and Tagalog.

Shifty Business: a short animation about the changing scheduling practices in the retail industry to help retail workers understand that their experiences are not isolated events, but a systemic approach to cost-cutting by their employers.

And be sure to check out our Youth Education Projects, Hello, My Name is Minimum Wage and Pay Dirt for teaching tools on minimum wage increases and the gender wage gap.
