SAN DIEGO – On May 1st, 2012, working families from throughout the county will rally in San Diego’s Civic Center as part of a day of action against the 1% who for too long have impeded progress from the 99% across the country.
“Despite of the economic crisis , I keep fighting so that I can offer my children a dignified life, one filled with great opportunity and prosperity,” says María Felix, a janitor for 17 years. “I am a proud janitor. I clean after the 1%, and I will not allow building owners or their contractors threaten to stop our progress. Together we will march; and together we will win the fight for a better life.”
Workers have felt the weight of economic policies do not benefit the majority. Working families deserve dignity and respect, policies that attack the quality of life of the majority and the two-party system that sides with the 1% of will be held accountable.
It’s time to recognize the tremendous contributions of working families, it’s time to stand with the majority.
