San Bernardino-KTLA-CW Los Angeles, CA
Union activists are protesting today’s San Bernardino county budget meeting. They’re rallying against the lack of pay increase for county caregivers who look after seniors and the disabled. Those workers haven’t had a wage increase in nine years.
Longtime labor leader Dolos Huerta is among the organizers of today’s rally. People depend on them. And here the workers depend on the county to give them the kind of wages they deserve. San Bernardino County caregivers help more than 30,000 low income seniors and people with disabilities. Board members have not commented on today’s protest.
