Coalition to Respect Every Worker (CREW)

In 2019, Philly JWJ came together with workers’ rights organizations across the city to demand robust enforcement of our progressive labor laws. Working people fought hard for these laws, but legislation isn’t enough if the city doesn’t have our back when it comes to enforcing them! The Coalition to Respect Every Worker (CREW) is demanding:

-An Independent Office of Labor
-Full Funding for Enforcement
-Worker Oversight Board, Whistleblower Protections
-Wall-to-Wall Enforcement
-Community Regrants for Worker Outreach
