Each week, the EJC holds Workers’ Rights Clinics, where low-income workers throughout the area can receive free, confidential advice from an attorney about unpaid wages, discrimination, injuries on the job, or other employment law issues. These clinics feature prominently in an article in the March 6, 2015 issue of the Washington City Paper. In the article, “Workers’ Fights”, writer Mike Paarlberg describes his experiences working as a volunteer at the Workers’ Rights Clinic, and the precarious existence of D.C.’s day laborers and other low-wage workers who visit EJC’s clinics.
