Garment Worker Center
Founded in 2001, the Garment Worker Center is a worker rights organization whose mission is to organize low-wage garment workers in Los Angeles in the fight for social and economic justice. GWC addresses the systemic problems of wage theft, unhealthy and unsafe working conditions, and the abusive and inhumane treatment faced by workers on-the-job. GWC’s goal is to build a base of organized garment workers in Los Angeles, with sufficient power to successfully demand change within the industry. In its 13 year history, GWC continues to be the only worker center in the state dedicated entirely to garment workers.
