I love getting to know our clients and hearing about their work experiences and how working for a living affects the rest of their daily lives. It is eye opening to meet so many diligent and hardworking employees who put so much time and energy into their jobs, despite working overtime without additional pay. Speaking with them has made it clear how important a role we can play in improving lives of anyone who works for a living, who has not been receiving fair pay for all the hours they work.
