​A narrative of the participatory practices to create the Wage Theft App with Day Laborers.“The Wage Theft App” has emerged from a vision to link the struggle for immigrant worker’s rights to the concept of community accountability through creative expression. This project was built through the collective brainstorming and work of immigrant day laborers, artists, organizers, developers, and lawyers.The projected intention is to complete and disseminate a smart-phone-based app that puts the power to fight wage theft directly back into the hands of the workers who suffer from it the most.
