The Dignity of Work
A Statement from Maryland's Bishops
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops recognize January as Poverty Awareness Month. In a statement titled The Dignity of Work, Maryland’s Catholic bishops call attention to the needs of the poor and the backbone of Maryland's workforce - the low-wage earner and working families, and urge their fair treatment. The Bishops' Statement was released in both English and Spanish.
Noting that legislation calling for just compensation and a healthy work environment will be prevalent this legislative session, the bishops urge "lawmakers to support final measures that will treat Maryland's workers fairly while sustaining local businesses and the jobs they provide."
