Laundromat Workers Liberation Day

February 16 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Laundromat workers across the city are taking the power back. It began at TYS Laundromat in Harlem. Now, laundromat workers in Brooklyn are taking a stand. For many years, these immigrant women workers have faced wage theft and abuse at the hands of their employer. Join us as we take to the streets in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to launch the next laundromat campaign for better wages and safe conditions.

On Saturday, February 16th at 1pm, Laundry Worker Center and allies will march together as the workers deliver their demands to their employer:

  • Respect the labor law! Pay minimum wage and overtime to all employees,
  • Structural changes and safe conditions! Provide adequate equipment, training, repairs, and ventilation,
  • Treat employees with dignity and respect! Apologize for the years of mistreatment. No more physical abuse,
  • Basic benefits! Holiday pay and paid sick days.
