Key Issue

Immigrant workers' rights

All people in the U.S.—regardless of immigration status—have a right to work with dignity, but immigrant workers are often denied this right. All workers should be paid a living wage and have the right to freely associate, organize, and form labor unions without employer retaliation or retribution.

AFSC works to end harmful policies and actions that expose immigrant workers to abuse and exploitation.
