From SEIU Local 1
It’s amazing to see downtown Detroit bustling with new investment, new buildings and new people.
We are the janitors and custodians who keep the “resurgence” clean. Every day we see two Detroits. One is in our communities where we are struggling to raise our families and make ends meet, and the other is the downtown and arena district bustling with new investment, buildings and people.
On June 14 we will launch our campaign for One Detroit where everyone can prosper from this resurgence everyone is talking about.
All of this development is subsidized by tax dollars and public money. We just ask that the jobs that are created are good jobs.
Stand with us as we campaign for our employers and private and public leadership to create good jobs for Detroiters where everyone can make at least $15 and have a union.
