The Worcester Community-Labor Coalition (WCLC) works to have a voice in the economic development plans of Central Massachusetts, especially for low-income communities and people of color. Coalition members understand that labor and community interests are the same. A trained workforce with access to good jobs is a vital component of any vibrant community. Good jobs are safe, they provide family sustaining wages and benefits, and they offer opportunities for advancement and career development.
