“Before I joined the union, I worked two jobs — eight hours in the morning as a gardener and then at night as a janitor. It was exhausting. I stood with my co-workers and fought for a union in 2001. We were able to secure full time employment and benefits, which gave me the opportunity to work full time as a janitor. I stay engaged in my union because I wholeheartedly believe unions raise standards for everyone and together hold corporations accountable for making billions at the expense of exploiting working families.”
