Fair Work Center and Working Washington joined forces in 2018. Together, we fight for new rights for working people and make those rights real through community-based education and legal services, all while building a powerful movement of working people.

We led the effort to expand overtime protections for Washington’s salaried workers, and in 2019 passed safety and health protections for strippers. We’ve trained hundreds of farmworkers in Eastern Washington about their rights at work, and we continue to organize domestic workers to enforce Seattle’s groundbreaking Bill of Rights.
