Companies in New England are enjoying a rebounding economy, but working families are struggling.
Now 14,000 janitors in New England, who clean buildings in the nation’s leading industries -- from financial services to biotech, higher education and healthcare -- are standing up to fight for good, full-time jobs. Their current contract expires on September 30th.
Because when workers stood up for good jobs they were met with illegal threats and intimidation, they have voted to authorize a strike to protest those unfair labor practices.
Janitors in Boston earn as little as $56 a day. Most janitors are part-time and many are forced to work two or three jobs just to survive because they are denied the opportunity for full-time work and employer-provided health coverage..
