Today, Thursday March 20, a delegation of 10 day laborers from the Downtown Community Job Center arrived at the offices of the District 14 Councilmember Jose Huizar. They came to ask for his support in obtaining a location to continue the operations of the Worker Center that has yet to be given news about whether or not it will continue to receive operational funds.

The day laborers are worried that after March 31st, it is possible that they won't have a space to wait for work in a safe and dependable way. Raul Salinas, a day laborer that has been in this Center for more than 10 years, asked that his petition be heard and said: "Today we are going through a metamorphosis. We have taken English classes, theater classes, computer literacy classes and we are even taking classes to become health promoters. But if we don't have a center to continue these services while waiting for work, you are cutting our wings.” In the District 14 offices, they were seen by Miguel Vargas, who promised to follow through and contact the workers with an answer as soon as possible.

Let's hope that a favorable response to their petition is announced soon and that the work the day laborers perform day by day is taken into account. Each one of these workers has a story and they have demonstrated us that the word "day laborer" encompasses more than just waiting for work at a corner.

On March 11, a day laborer from the Cypress Park Community Job Center (IDEPSCA) came to visit the members of the Downtown Center to share his knowledge and experiences with drywall.

To make this class possible, a donation of materials was first obtained from the Home Depot and Jose Martinez. Additionally, David Gomez decided to donate his time to share his knowledge. David has a lot of experience in construction and gardening work and he was well received by the Downtown workers, who paid close attention and collaborated in this class. This class was an important tool to provide more skills to increase job opportunities for the workers.

The class lasted a bit over two hours, and David brought his tools and explained their functions and trade practices. This one of the classes that are provided for day laborers that are not only waiting for work, but also collaborate as volunteers to promote the centers and invite other day laborers congregating at the corners.

Those of us with the opportunity to work alongside these day laborers have come to know them in many aspects, but especially as human beings willing to earn the term “day laborer.”

The biggest success is that they support one another, develop leadership skills and share space, work, skills and experiences!!

Support the day laborers!!!
