Low-Wage Workers' Health Project

 

 

In this fourth report of the "Low-Wage Workers' Health Project," workers from Syracuse, Ithaca, Binghamton and Albany/Troy were brought together through partnerships with community-based organizations. Workers created innovative body mapping and created visual displays envisioning healthy work. Then, workers engaged in dialogue about these visual representations to produce rich discussion about their experiences on the job. These conversations were summarized to create a clearer picture of low-wage work in these regions, with a new focus on barriers to the envisioned healthy workplace.
