I am part of an all-volunteer-run workers' rights legal clinic (where people can get free legal advice when their rights have been violated at work) and worker support hotline. It's amazing how much this resource is needed in Maine.
We get calls from restaurant workers, healthcare professionals, temp workers, retail staff, the list goes on and on. We are also getting calls from across the state from York County up to Caribou and Fort Kent. We provide resources to all folks, in multiple languages.
We are working on building relationships and supporting more collective organizing efforts in Maine.
SMWC is such an important community of really incredible folks. And it's doing really important advocacy and community organizing in Southern Maine. Right now we're working on an earned paid sick days ordinance and on access to healthcare for everyone.
And...the organization operates with very little. I believe with more funding, great things will happen.
