Raise the Wages for Janitors and Custodians

Date: 
Thu, Jun 14, 2018 - 11:30am

City:

On Thursday, June 14, SEIU launches a major campaign to raise the wages for janitors and custodians in Downtown Detroit to $15 an hour.

It’s amazing to see downtown Detroit bustling with
new investment, new buildings and new people.
We are the janitors and custodians who keep the
“resurgence” clean. Every day we see two Detroits.

One is in our communities where we are struggling to
raise our families and make ends meet, and the other
is the downtown and arena district bustling with new
investment, buildings and people.
