FARMWORKER OVERTIME
For too long farmworkers have been excluded from receiving overtime pay. This exclusion has roots in the racist 1938 Federal Labor Standards Act, which sought to deny Black farmworkers from this benefit. This exclusion was wrong in 1938 and it’s wrong now. Farmworkers deserve to be paid for their hard work just like everyone else. Through this multi-year phased-in plan, farmworkers will finally receive the pay they deserve.

UNIVERSAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION
Our country’s immigration court system is complex and confusing. Too many immigrants are left to navigate this complicated system by themselves when they’re given a deportation order, often in a language they’re not fluent in. Through Universal Legal Representation, Oregon would connect immigrants with legal support and help families stay together.

Join Adelante Mujeres and more on a community forum to learn about these two important initiatives.
