Today around noon tons of local janitors, community organizations and supporters painted downtown purple; marching in support of a livable wage. Seven janitors were arrested in the lobby of the Allen Center for civil disobedience. Outside the Allen Center supporters chanted loudly, expressing unwavering allegiance to Local 1′s janitor fight.
This week Local 1 plans to heighten its activity to draw more attention to why the janitors are continuing to battle wage inequality. Tomorrow will be another opportunity to join the movement. For more information about upcoming actions check out our Facebook page.
