The webinar aimed to inform workers of their rights, such as the minimum wage of $15 per hour in Massachusetts, being paid for all hours worked, and protection from retaliation for reporting unsafe conditions or wage theft. It also highlighted that all workers have labor rights regardless of immigration status. Recordings are available in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole and Brazilian Portuguese with a powerpoint presentation available online.
