About The Workers Lab:

The Workers Lab’s purpose is to give new ideas about increasing worker power a chance to succeed and flourish. The Workers Lab envisions a society where workers are powerful drivers of economic, political, and social transformation. To bring about that vision, we invest in and promote the experimentation and learnings of public, private, and non-profit leaders who are testing new ideas to improve the lives of workers across a spectrum of worker power. Founded by Dr. Carmen Rojas in 2014, The Workers Lab is based in Oakland, California.
