The Project

Although low-income working people make a vital contribution to the economy and communities of Texas, it is shockingly common for many of these men and women to not be paid for the work they perform. This is especially true for immigrant workers and low-income Texans who work in the construction industry. Developing new expertise in low-wage construction law is the next critical steps in a state-wide movement to expand access to justice for low-income working people.
