Workers Defense Project plans Oak Cliff office

An Austin-based nonprofit that advocates for the rights of day laborers and migrant workers plans to open its first Dallas branch in Oak Cliff in September.

Workers Defense Project will take office space inside Christ Episcopal Church in time for Labor Day.

Executive director Cristina Tzintzun says the nonprofit is expanding to Dallas because it has received so many calls for help from Dallas workers.

“Most workers in Dallas have no place to turn,” she says.

    So… who is going to be fighting for the rights of unskilled American workers who would like to earn a living without their wages being underbid by folks who are willing to work for less than minimum wage, not chip in for Social Security, keep quiet about labor-law violations, all because they’re in the country illegally?      Just asking.
