8:30am – 4pm
1805 W. Alabama St., Houston, TX 77098
In this time of deep political divisions, there should be nothing controversial about the notion that working people who do their jobs should be paid for their work.
Unfortunately in Millionaire City, hundreds of working families are forced to go without their hard-earned wages due to unscrupulous employers, ineffective workplace law enforcement, and lack of protections on the job. We believe that all Houstonians should be able to make a living with dignity and respect. That’s why this year, we are celebrating The Value of Our Work.
We will be visiting unscrupulous employers and denouncing labor abuses in our city and we will also learn how we can make Houston a just and prosperous place to work!
Join our group of workers, faith leaders, and community allies as we stand in solidarity with Houston workers who have experienced labor abuses and demand justice! The Justice Bus will be departing from the parking lot of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church (1805 W. Alabama St.). If you are unable to ride the bus but would still like to join us, you can meet at any of our stops through the route. Our stops include:
□ Visiting unscrupulous employers around Houston who have stolen workers’ wages and demanding payment.
□ Lunch & Discussion about wage theft in Houston and what we can do to stop it.
□ Press conference showcasing affected workers stories and a call to action for the community.
