The Interfaith Center for Worker Justice (ICWJ) of the Workers Interfaith Network will continue its organizing efforts against wage theft through the "Clean up the Cleaning Industry" Campaign. Over the past two and a half years, ICWJ has partnered with hundreds of low-wage workers to secure over $450,000 in unpaid wages from employers in different industries. In 2010 ICWJ will deepen this work by organizing a proactive campaign with retail cleaning workers that gets to the roots of worker exploitation and wage theft in retail cleaning.
