Why have a Workers Center?

The Pioneer Valley prides itself on being a hub of the local food movement which values sustainability, buying local, and fair trade, yet the jobs of those who serve food in its restaurants are characterized by low wages, few benefits, discrimination, no voice at work, and little opportunity for advancement.

Currently it is employers and consumers who dominate the dialogue around the food systems in our region while the voices and interests of workers are left unheard.

In the absence of grassroots base-building that seeks to connect and organize diverse groups of restaurant workers, there is little opportunity to engage in the direct action needed to create the systemic change that improves conditions for all food workers.
