PROJECT SUMMARY

Self-contained day labor station

In many US cities day laborers use street corners as informal hiring sites. For hours on end they wait by the roadside and in parking lots, often in the hot sun and without any amenities, in the hope of securing a day’s work for a day’s pay.

The Self-contained day labor station aims to improve the life quality of those who find themselves on the edge of the American Dream.
