Metrowest Worker Center is an immigrant worker-led organization based in the MetroWest area of Boston, Massachusetts, which organizes to defend and expand the labor, civil, and human rights of all workers.
- We are purposely multilingual and multiracial , and work to unite communities that unscrupulous employers seek to divide . Our meetings are held in at least two languages (Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese), and we have a sizable membership from the indigenous Kichua (Ecuadorian) community.
- We combine direct action and legal strategies to combat wage theft which has allowed us to recover more than $4 million in unpaid wages, while building worker power.
- Our membership is a combination of people and institutions, and we assist workers in developing worker-owned cooperative businesses.
- We have an Allies Committee which organizes communities of privilege to support immigrant-led campaigns, fundraise, take action against unjust laws and policies, and dismantle racism and xenophobia in their own communities.
