Stand with Workers Defense Project and ask Gables to Build it Better!

Gables Residential is a prominent real estate developer in the southern United States. Construction workers on numerous Gables projects have reported widespread cases of abuse by subcontractors, including:

  • Not being paid for their work: workers reported over $140,000 in wage theft
  • Working 50-60 hours a week without receiving overtime pay
  • Denial of rest breaks in 100 degree heat
  • Having to work without necessary safety equipment

We need your to help put an end to these inhumane conditions. WDP is calling on Gables to become a Better Builder by ensuring that construction workers who help build their luxury apartments receive a living wage, have safe working conditions, and are able to earn a rewarding career in the industry.

WDP has signed landmark agreements with developers that combine expanded safety protections and living wage requirements to improve working conditions. WDP is asking Gables to join other developers in building a better construction industry by ensuring good, safe jobs for construction workers who build their projects.

Gables has the opportunity to become an industry leader by investing in the workers who have labored tirelessly to help make Gables Residential profitable. We are asking Gables to take this opportunity to improve the lives of thousands of workers.
