LAX Employees to Rally Today Over Unfair Wages, Outsourced Jobs
Workers are planning a rally at LAX this afternoon to protest what they call the airport's attempt to cut costs by hiring irresponsible contractors and outsourcing jobs, putting travelers at risk and forcing airline employees to work for unlivable wages.
In a statement, Good Jobs L.A. says that everyone suffers as a result of the airline's effort to increase profits:
This race to the bottom has undermined LAX’s Living Wage Ordinance as many airport workers struggle to support their families on low wages, lack affordable health care, face high rates of accidents and injuries on the job and are treated as a disposable workforce.
The rally will be held at LAX's Tom Bradley International Terminal at 12:15 p.m., and hundreds of workers are expected to show up.
