Stop Wage Theft! Know-Your-Rights and Intake Session

Is your employer refusing to pay you for the hours you worked?
Are you working more than 40 hours a week without overtime?
Were you fired, threatened, or punished for speaking up about wages?

Join Justice at Work on the last Tuesday of every month at our wage theft training and clinic in East Boston!

Tuesday, September 25th
6pm to 8pm
Salvadoran Consulate
46 Bennington St., East Boston, MA 02128

We will provide a basic overview of your wage and hour rights. After the training, attorneys will be available for brief legal consultations and intake sessions, free-of-charge.

Know your rights! You are not alone!

Make Justice at Work Possible! Take the #DanceForJustice Challenge

Step 1: Film yourself dancing (in a group, in a pair, by yourself, whatever!)

At the start of the video, tell people what you’re doing, name three friends you nominate to take the challenge, and tell them what they have been challenged to do.

Sample Video Script:

“I’m taking the Justice at Work #DanceforJustice Challenge” [optional: give reason why you support Justice at Work.]

I nominate [name three people] to take the challenge. You need to film yourself dancing (alone or with a group) or else make a donation to Justice at Work. Then, nominate three other people to take the challenge!”

[optional: “And if you’re in the Boston area, come join us at Salsa for Justice on October 11th!”]

Step 2: Get others involved! Post your video on social media. See sample post below.
