At the Solidarity Center, we believe that all people who work should receive the rewards of their labor—decent paychecks and benefits, safe jobs, respect and fair treatment. We believe that economic and social injustice around the world are neither intractable problems nor acceptable byproducts of a global economy where some can win at the expense of many. Rather, we believe that working women and men can collectively improve their wages and workplaces, call on their governments to uphold laws and protect human rights, and be a force for democracy, shared prosperity and inclusive economic development. Across the world, we work with allies to strengthen democratic worker organizations, to increase the organizing and bargaining capacity of unions and grassroots organizations, and to empower workers, especially women, to defend their rights at work and in their communities.
