Edgar Salazar-Velazquez

Day Labor Employment Advocate

Hi my name is Edgar Salazar. I have been inspired to pursue a career in community social work and am currently enrolled at Merritt College. I have experienced first hand as a low wage worker discrimination in the work place. I was a volunteer member at SHLP for 2 years, which encouraged me to apply for my current position as an  employment specialist. Also, I have been part of east bay organization committee (EBOC) for higher wages in Oakland.
