Janitors, maintenance and security workers around the U.S. and the world marked Justice for Janitors Day Tuesday and are holding actions all week to demand safety, fair pay, healthcare, immigration reform, and respect in the workplace. In Miami, workers have been on strike since last Thursday over low wages, pay discrimination and unfair labor practices. This is Miami janitor Walter Osores.
Walter Osores: “We need to work two or three jobs. Right now I’m only sleeping four or five hours to be able to support my family. It’s unfair. We want a better quality of life and for them to invest in us, in essential workers.”
