The Day Labor Center was opened in 1994 in direct response to local demand for temporary labor and the need to eliminate a public safety hazard. The Center serves the community by providing an organized, safe venue for contractors, including home and business owners, to engage in the temporary labor placement process.
The Center has between 150 and 350 workers seeking work each day, with availability ranging from unskilled manual labor to specialties such as landscaping, restaurant work, cleaning, and construction trades. The Center is a safe place where Customers and Day Laborers can come together and exchange day labor work for daily pay in a well-organized and supervised environment.
Hourly rates, job specific requirements, and transportation arrangements are negotiated between the Contractor and Laborer prior to leaving the Center.
