Delegates march for a living wage in Seatac

Prop1-Rally-11• Community Organizing

Thanks to the efforts of the union’s Next Wave Committee of young leaders, delegates on Saturday afternoon marched for the Living Wage Initiative in Seatac, where underpaid hotel, airlines and other employees work. They trouped to the corporate headquarters of Alaska Airlines, which tried to keep the measure off the ballot. This is part of the stepped-up movement to reach into the community to join in the fight for the Middle Class. “We can’t do it alone…,” AFSCME President Lee Saunders said earlier in the day. “We’ve got to make very effort to engage our partners, our allies, our coalitions to stand with us in our battles….If we expect them to stand with us, then we must stand with them.”
