Our campaign is built around the belief that everyone affected by wage theft should have an active role in putting an end to the problem. Our campaign is led by workers, volunteers, students, and community, faith, and union allies whose notion of solidarity lies in a firm and persevering determination to commit themselves to the common good, to the good of all and each individual because we are all responsible for each other.
With this in mind, our campaign depends on you to successfully carry out its mission to improve the lives of Houston working families and make our city a just and prosperous place to work.
Let Mayor Parker know you support an Anti-Wage Theft Ordinance:
After the amazing response of our community at the public hearing, the City of Houston is seeking public input on the proposed Anti Wage Theft Ordinance through the City’s web page. Voice your support for the ANTI-WAGE THEFT ORDINANCE through the following link: http://www.houstontx.gov/feedback-wagetheft.html
If you are part of a community organization, union, faith group, or responsible business, you can sign on to our campaign and be part of our coalition by adding your name to our sign-on letter, disseminating education materials and information about campaign events to your members, participate in delegations or worker actions, or make a financial contribution to the campaign.
