2004- Present

WAGES‘ mission is to build worker-owned green businesses that create healthy, dignified jobs for low-income women. In our network of eco-friendly housecleaning cooperatives, women develop personal and professional skills, become leaders, and gain economic security. WAGES is currently expanding its cooperatives in the San Francisco Bay Area, starting with San Francisco itself, in partnership with Seventh Generation, the leading provider of less toxic home cleaning solutions. Ann Blake has been a member of the WAGES Board since 2003, chaired the Board from 2004-2008, and currently serves as Board co-chair.
