The word is getting out. TV news stories, petitions, billboards and more are all spreading the word about the poverty wage jobs at our airport. Now it’s time for the next step, a major rally where airport workers and community members will come together to stand up for good jobs at our airport.
Thousands of people get paid only poverty wages for work they do at our airport. These are the workers who move the bags, help passengers with disabilities get to their destinations, clean the cabins between flights, and fuel the planes. These are people who help make our airport work.
Lots of the folks who work at our airport are immigrants and refugees. They came to Seattle from all over the world for a better life for their families. They deserve our support as they fight for basic rights, decent pay and workplace respect.
The good news is that together we can help support their efforts to change their situation for the better.
Let’s make all airport jobs good jobs.
