Global Restructuring, Social Distancing, and a Community-Based Workerâ€™s Center Response
This paper addresses the impacts of global â€œsocial distancingâ€ on employers and workers and examines community-based worker center strategies to mitigate those impacts. Through a case study of El Centro Humanitario, Denverâ€™s human rights center for immigrant day laborers, the paper addresses how community organizations can respond to social distancing by â€œorganizing the unorganized,â€ and crafting strategies such as worker-owned cooperatives to promote workersâ€™ rights while reconnecting workers to their work and to each other.JEL classification: L31, L33, P32
