U.S. Worker Centers Web Archive

Collected by: Cornell University Library

Archived since: Feb, 2017

Description:

Worker centers are community-based and community-led organizations that organize and provide support to workers. The number of worker centers in the United States has been steadily growing since the 1990s. Many worker centers have established an internet presence through web sites and social media. Worker centers often operate on limited budgets and staffing, resulting in web sites and content that can be ephemeral. With this collection of web sites, the Martin P. Catherwood Library in Cornell University’s ILR School aims to make information about these worker organizations available to future generations of scholars.
