Additional Information on CASA's Employment Program

CASA’s Employment Program places workers in day, temporary, and permanent jobs that pay a living wage.  Operating out of CASA’s Silver Spring Workers' Center and Wheaton Workers' Center, this program will expand in the coming months to open Centers in Baltimore City , Greater Gaithersburg, and Prince George ’s County.  At CASA’s Centers, men and women workers take on leadership roles in determining the Center regulations, as well as salary scales to avoid underbidding.  CASA’s Workers' Centers are recognized as a national model in addressing the employment-related needs of recent low-income immigrants.  These Centers also offer classes and training for workers to improve their employability.

 

CASA also meets employers’ needs by screening workers and employers and matching employers with workers to fit their labor needs.  All workers sign codes of ethics and standards of conduct, ensuring high-quality work product.  Over 3,300 employers hire workers for day, temporary, and permanent jobs every year, in areas such as landscaping, drywall, painting, carpentry, moving, and cleaning. 

 

The Employment Program collaborates with other CASA programs to educate workers about their employment-related rights, to educate workers about healthy life styles and ways to prevent serious illnesses, and to find leaders to be community speakers and represent the workers in different actions related to the growth of the community.

 

Day Laborers and Workers at CASA

 

Day laborers are women and men without full-time jobs who seek temporary work to support themselves and their families. This type of employment activity has always existed, but the number of people forced into day labor has increased in recent years as employers seek to replace permanent workers. Day labor pick-up sites at street corners, vacant lots and shopping centers have proliferated and are now common in urban communities.

 

In the DC metro area, the majority of day laborers are immigrants and refugees from Latin America, but some are born in the U.S.   All look for jobs with fair wages and employers who treat them with respect.

 

Unfortunately, the majority returns each day home without finding work. And often those lucky enough to get a job are cheated of their promised wage after days or weeks of hard work. For some employers, day workers are an easily exploitable labor force, without the knowledge or ability to protect themselves.

 

CASA has developed a successful model of addressing the needs of employers and day laborers through Workers' Centers.  These Centers provide employment placement services combined with ESOL classes, vocational training, legal services, and community organizing to help workers achieve economic self-sufficiency.
