Worker Roundtable on Colorado Minimum Wage Order

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.

Location: LiUNA Local 720, 875 Elati Street Denver, CO 80204 United States

In The Courtroom

Our litigators help workers advance legal claims that address systemic injustice. We use antitrust, anti-slavery, fraud, wage-and-hour, and common-law challenges to address the wide variety of practices that nickel-and-dime low-wage workers out of their hard-earned wages. We have represented a hundred thousand childcare workers alleging wage suppression, tens of thousands of immigrant detainees alleging forced labor, and hundreds of construction workers, shepherds, manicurists, janitors, and kitchen hood cleaners. We are leaders in challenging anti-competitive practices that reduce worker bargaining power and support marginalized people who challenge structural impediments to their advancement.
