Religious Perspectives on Work

Religious Employers Resources

Interfaith Worker Justice is committed to promoting just and ethical treatment of workers in religiously-sponsored institutions. The focus thus far has been on large religious employers, particularly in the health care industry.

The following resources have been compiled in order to:

  • Organize and educate people of faith to support workers in their struggles for a just and living wage, health benefits, and participation in decisions which affect their lives.
  • Educate and call Religious Employers to honor and apply their religious and ethical principles of justice to their relationship with and treatment of workers.
