McKinley Community Collaborative for Health Equity has partnered with Somos Gallup and Somos Un Pueblo Unidos to conduct a health impact assessment on wage theft and build the capacity of low wage workers in McKinley County. Wage theft impacts families when workers are not paid overtime, misclassified, not paid the minimum wage, or not paid. Often, low wage workers may encounter wage theft, yet do not report the situation. We are conducting a health impact assessment to protect and expand protections of low wage workers. This also provides an opportunity to bring communities together across cultural differences in order to build the power of the people.
