WAGES helps create and support the development of sustainable business which enable women to work with dignity and control over their own futures. The business that I have most familiarity with is Natural Home Cleaning which not only does an excellent job with green house cleaning, but also empowers the coop members to run their own business and participate in the decisions that impact their work.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

creating and sustaining living wage job that promote dignity and empower workers.

We have an old enamel "Wedgewood" stove, well-used but no longer the glowing white it once was. I never saw it so clean as when we had WAGES-trained and -organized cleaners here. The whole house breathes a sigh of relief after they come through.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

our home, and in our cohousing neighborhood's Common House on a regular basis.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

more aggressively market the green aspects.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing that the workers are working for themselves, not some impersonal/arbitrary employer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, helpful, ready to get to work

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the model to additional regions and make it a viable choice.

Ways to make it better...

they weren't so busy so I had more choice in scheduling.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

inertia and a declining economy limiting discretionary household spending.

I've had housecleaning by them for four years, always with great results. The quality has been consistent each and every time. To top it off, only natural products are used, the workers get a fair wage and are involved in the decisions. They are doing well on all fronts. I think people sometimes accept a lower level of service in exchange for supporting a business with good progressive credentials. However, with WAGES, I don't have to -- because their service is super!
