Flushing is a labor disaster zone. Many workers, who live and/or work in the area, work long hours for low wages. In recent years, enforcement of labor laws by the government has become very weak and even when workers complain, little happens. We formed the Flushing Workers Center to change this.
Our center was founded in 2012 by immigrant and young workers to unite workers to fight for better conditions at our workplaces, our homes and in our communities. We are membership organization open to workers of all trades, ethnicities and backgrounds. All workers, regardless of immigration status, whether you are currently working, are welcome to come and find out more.
