Thanksgiving is a day to spend time with family, which is why the day before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year. This would not be possible without the approximately 600 workers who clean the planes and transport senior and disabled passengers with wheelchairs and electric carts.
They help families celebrate together, yet they are paid so little they can’t provide the basic necessities for their own families. They earn an average of $7.73 an hour with no benefits, with many at or near minimum wage even after years on the job.
These Workers Make Holiday Travel Happen. They deserve a living wage. On Wednesday, November 27, airport workers are taking a stand for fair wages, respect, and dignity.
Will you stand with them?
When: Wednesday, November 27 12:00 noon.
Where: Minneapolis/St Paul International Airport, Outside Terminal 1
