about the program
Day labor markets are a highly visible part of many communities across California and the nation. However, not much is known about day laborers themselves. This presentation addresses the following questions: How does the day labor market work? What are the characteristics of California’s day laborers? What are their working conditions? And how are local California governments dealing with the presence of day labor markets in their communities? Lunch is provided for this event.
