In collaboration with Raise the Floor Alliance, a coalition founded by eight worker centers in the Chicago, NESRI created survey and interview tools in English and Spanish to document what happens when workers try to address problems at work. With these tools, we captured workers’ stories that expose the way retaliation and intimidation are constantly deployed by low-wage employers and are perpetuating rampant illegal abuses in a growing portion of workplaces.
Findings from our collaborative study in Illinois are captured in our joint report, Business of Fear. The full report and executive summary are available here.
