The Wage Justice Center

Los Angeles, CA, USA

The Wage Justice Center fights for greater economic equality in California and social justice in the increasingly integrated global economy. We provide a systematic solution to enforce the basic economic rights of California's workers and to collect unpaid wages from employers who have previously escaped consequences for illegally underpaying their employees.

By developing new strategies to enforce wage rights and educate workers, advocates, and the public, The Wage Justice Center compels employers to redistribute the capital obtained by violating workers’ rights laws. The Wage Justice Center's unique approach of enforcing judgments and creating a permanent enforcement mechanism for wage rights is part of the growing national movement of organizations that combat the systemic inequality facing America’s poorest workers.
