Greater MN Worker Center is an organization focused on creating systemic change and economic/social justice for low-wage workers in St. Cloud and surrounding communities. It has identified many of these workers to be people of color (Somali, South Sudanese, Latino and African American). Greater MN Worker Center would like to develop a worker led and empowered organization. By building leaders and providing them leadership opportunities, it hopes that it can address issues within workplaces and the community through organizing and action. Some of the areas it would like to see change in is living wages, fair and flexible scheduling, wage theft, safety, respect, and discrimination on the job, and earned sick and safe time.
