CASE strives to build an Arizona economy that benefits all families.
The low-wage service sector is the fastest-growing industry in Phoenix and is also the largest employer of immigrants and people of color. Many people working in the service industry do not earn enough to maintain their families, which is why CASE supports workplace organizing, political participation, and policy changes that raise job standards and bring quality jobs to central Arizona.
With so much at stake in this year’s Presidential Election, CASE will be stepping up our voter engagement efforts.
Today, there are over 550,000 legal permanent residents in Arizona, and more than 210,000 of them (38%) are currently eligible to become U.S. citizens.
Quality jobs, with dignity and respect, in the hospitality industry can help create a genuine middle class in metropolitan Phoenix, and can help stabilize some of our most struggling communities.
