We were so proud to support the nurses on this beautiful, sunny morning! Take a moment to listen to why Sharp RN’s are asking for YOUR support and keep an eye out for Rev. Riggs’ cameo! #WeSupportSharpRNs
This afternoon, we joined San Diego Fight for 15 – Lucha por 15 and other unions and community members to say, “Enough is enough!” to sexual harassment in the workplace, specifically in the fast food industry. Sexual harassment is UNACCEPTABLE. EVERY worker deserves dignity and respect – in every form! We called on McDonald’s to set the standard in the fast food industry!
Today, the ICWJ marched with many community allies and unions in solidarity with LabCorp phlebotomists calling on the company to recognize the union. These workers are concerned not just for themselves, but for the safety and well-being of their patients. They are understaffed and are concerned that the quality of care for their patients is not being prioritized. We will continue to stand with these workers as they struggle for a voice on the job, quality healthcare, fair pay, safer labs, justice for their patients!
Last weekend we traveled to Richmond, Virginia, to join thousands of low-wage workers in making a clarion call for economic and racial justice.
The #Fightfor15, #BlackLivesMatter, and #ImmigrantRights joined together as one movement to stand up to the legacy of our country’s oppressive and racist history that continues to exploit and oppress today.
What an honor to march beside such incredible people and what a privilege it was to hear their stories.
This afternoon, we stood with Burger King workers in National City who are enduring unsafe working conditions that include lack of adequate ventilation and air conditioning in hot kitchens and bathroom breaks that are required by law. Many workers have been diagnosed with UTIs and kidney infections because of the lack of bathroom breaks and others have had trouble breathing in poorly ventilated kitchens full of greasy air. The ICWJ joined Burger King workers in demanding fair working conditions for people worthy of dignity and respect! In the photo above, Rev. Wayne Riggs, Interim Executive Director of the ICWJ, speaks out on behalf of the thousands of people of faith and conscience across San Diego County represented by the ICWJ saying that no human being should ever have to endure these kinds of conditions. #Fightfor15SD
