2,000 Strong in Boston to Raise Up America with Good Jobs

Thousands turned out to a rally on the Boston Common in support of the more than 13,000 New England area janitors whose contracts are set to expire at the end of the month. Calling for more full-time jobs so workers can qualify for health care benefits, as well a cost-of-living wage increase, SEIU union and community members came from New York, New Jersey, Hudson Valley, and Connecticut to support SEIU District 615.

Elizabeth Waren was also on hand, speaking about her father’s experience as a janitor and making clear how important labor is to maintaining a vibrant – and clean – community.
