15 Food Distribution for Airport Workers
Airport security workers at the Oakland airport in a meeting of Pilipino Association of Workers and Immigrants (PAWIS) and Filipinos for Affirmative Action. Workers, most of whom are Filipino immigrants, are trying to join Service Employees Local 1877. They are poorly paid and often work just a few hours a week. They accuse the security companies that employ them of discriminating against them, refusing to recognize their union rights, and not paying the wage mandated by Oakland's living wage law..
