In its ten years of operation the Workers’ Rights Center has been largely driven by volunteers–community members who dedicate a few hours a week to assist workers in understanding their rights in the workplace and helping them in finding solutions to problems.
The WRC holds regular advocate trainings, to educate volunteers on Wisconsin labor law, WRC policies and protocols and strategies that have been proven successful. The center also holds special trainings for volunteers with attorneys and agency staff to focus on specific topics and issues that effect low-income workers.
Volunteers also assist with the day-to-day operations of the center, helping in the office, making phone calls, laying out fliers and newsletters etc.
