For many, unsafe working conditions are a routine reality on the job – as is the real risk of retaliation, if workers speak out to the boss. Likewise, for many supporting families here and in their home country, an unsafe job may seem better than the risk of no job at all. It is in this context that we hope to arm community leaders with a realistic, relevant orientation around health and safety issues. There is an emphasis in this training on group work and group problem solving – and a goal to identify those steps workers can take together to improve their working conditions, with or without the knowledge or support of the boss. It is important for workers to understand that the law protects them against retaliation for complaining about unsafe conditions, regardless of immigration status.
