Support Good Wages and Benefits for Working Families in San Francisco

Recently, Supervisor Mark Farrell introduced legislation to require a citywide Project Labor Agreement (PLA) for public work or improvement projects with projected costs over $1 million. This will help create higher wages for workers, better protections for workers, better opportunities for local residents, and work of enduring quality for San Francisco.

Unfortunately, after I hurt myself at work recently, I learned for the first time that my employer failed to pay its premiums and does not, in fact, have workers' compensation coverage. I haven't been paid in weeks. My medical bills are piling up. I don't know when, or even if, I'll be able to return to work. What can I do?
