I am a #YOUNGWORKER - Event Wednesday, Nov. 18th

CCREC Fellow and Project Director for the UCLA Center for Labor Research and Education, Dr. Janna Shadduck Hernandez, in partnership with community based organizations throughout Los Angeles will be hosting an event this Wednesday, November 18th, titled I am a#YOUNGWORKER. The event will be held at UCLA Downtown Labor Center in MacArthur Park from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. and will present research findings on the working conditions of young workers in Los Angeles through a variety of formats, including a 30 print photo exhibit focused on 8 young workers, young worker testimonies, music, and theater activities. This important research was made possible in part by a 2014 CCREC Seed Grant, Working LA Series: Young Workers in Los Angeles as Applied Researchers and Advocates for Change. Access the formal report here: Young Workers in Los Angeles: A Snapshot.
