Join workers, advocates, and community members for a night of discussion and story sharing as we encourage the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment to edit and improve the Wage Order and protect all Colorado workers.
Today in Colorado, many workers can go entire workdays without being guaranteed a legal break. Managers in all industries can legally be worked well over 60-70 hours a week without being paid overtime. Depending on what industry you work in, some workers like agriculture workers on small farms, are not entitled to receive the state minimum wage.
Right now, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) is considering changes to the Colorado Minimum Wage Order (“Wage Order”) that could address many of the gaps in worker protections. We believe ALL workers like construction, agriculture, and managers in fast-food restaurants, retail stores, and non-profits deserve workplace protections.
Food and childcare will be provided.
