Carwasheros are Washing Out Industry Wage Theft, Demanding Dignity on the Job and Union Representation
Featuring
The Carwasheros
Mayor Bill de Blasio
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman,
City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito

Carwasheros are the thousands of workers who shampoo, wax, dry, & detail cars and who are among some of the most exploited workers in New York. They frequently work in appalling conditions for low or, in many instances no wages. Too often car wash owners flout labor laws, health and safety regulations and environmental protections in their single minded drive for profits. But Carwash workers throughout New York have come together in the Wash New York campaign and have succeeded in voting to unionize eight workplaces and have won contracts at six of them. They re a part of the trend of low-wage workers organizing throughout the country and breathing life into the cause for workers justice and we'll hear all about their organizing for workers rights.
