Resources for workers!

Resources for workers!

Happy International Workers' Day! Today, we're celebrating workers the way we celebrate every day: by sharing and creating resources that help historically underrepresented people know their rights and participate in the decision-making processes that shape their communities.

Below are a few CUP projects from the archives that uplift the rights of workers 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. 

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.

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, explain the steps that go into starting or joining one, and show what a day on the job looks like for a worker-owner.
