Laundry Workers Center partnered with the Community Development Project of the Urban Justice Center to investigate the workplace challenges faced by retail laundromat workers. Together, we developed and conducted a participatory research project, combining observations at retail laundromats with worker surveys and interviews to document these workers’ experiences in a too often overlooked industry.
The findings presented in this report shed light on the range of workplace violations and health and safety issues that retail laundromat workers continue to experience.
