The Project

I will work to ensure that low-income workers of Marin, California receive the wages and other basic worker protections to which they are entitled and that are essential to their fair participation in the labor market. I will engage in direct client representation, supplemented by legislative reform, community education and media outreach. The ultimate goal is to actualize the deterrent effect of the presently unenforced statutory protections and to educate the workforce about their rights.
