In the vibrant heart of Los Angeles, the Immigo team enthusiastically joined hands with the local community to celebrate Día Del Jornalero, an event with a profound purpose. Translated as "Day of the Day Laborer," this annual gathering serves as a powerful tribute to the enduring economic contributions and the remarkable struggle for worker's and immigrant rights. At its core, Día Del Jornalero is a reflection of the resilience and determination of day laborers who have faced decades of mistreatment, exploitation, and the harsh realities of immigration enforcement.

The Purpose of Día Del Jornalero:

Día Del Jornalero is an occasion rooted in history and purpose. It stands as a testament to the unwavering commitment of day laborers who, for decades, have toiled under tough working conditions, battling wage theft, and enduring countless hardships. These dedicated individuals have played pivotal roles in supporting local industries and trades, contributing to the very fabric of Los Angeles.

But Día Del Jornalero is more than a celebration of labor; it's a tribute to the indomitable spirit of day laborers who, despite facing adversities, have continued to invest their skills, time, and effort in building a better community. Their struggle for worker's rights and immigrant rights has not been without challenges. They have faced exploitation, criminalization, and even harsh immigration enforcement, all while endeavoring to make a living and secure a brighter future.

Empowering Immigrant Workers:

Recognizing the significance of Día Del Jornalero, the Immigo team actively engaged with attendees, sharing vital information on workers' rights, immigration services, and legal matters. Workshops and consultations were offered to empower immigrant workers with knowledge and resources, equipping them to assert their rights and navigate the complexities of the labor market.
