Join us for a breakfast briefing exploring the struggles and successes of low-wage and blue-collar workers in the tech economy.

Worker leaders employed in blue-collar occupations will share their experiences working at some of Silicon Valley’s largest companies, the challenges they face in the workplace, and what policymakers and community leaders can do to improve working standards in this part of the tech economy.

We'll also present the findings from a new research brief, Blue-Collar Workers in the High-Tech Supply Chain, which will map the connections between the regional tech economy and blue-collar industries such as manufacturing, logistics, and service work.
