It is widely known that immigrant workers do a large share of home construction work in Philadelphia. However, many are unaware of the stolen wages and hazardous working conditions that define this industry. With the help of the local church, several day laborers formed PWA Cooperative, an immigrant-owned construction cooperative providing quality work, fair wages, and safe working conditions. Come hear from the leaders of PWA Cooperative as they discuss how they are applying 125 years of Catholic Social Teaching to transform the home construction industry in Philadelphia.
