Workers' rights are human rights

Economic justice is essential for securing basic human rights, alleviating local and global poverty, and achieving a more peaceful and just world. UUSC recognizes that workers' rights are human rights and works to improve the lives of the world's most marginalized and vulnerable workers.

UUSC's Economic Justice Program develops strategic partnerships and networks, builds movements, and influences local, statewide, and national policy on workers' rights and living wages. To this effort UUSC brings staff advocacy, a faith-based activist constituency, and educational tools.
