Sat Apr 26 2014 (Updated 04/28/14)SF Teachers and Paraprofessionals Fight For Their Rights
Sat Apr 26 2014 (Updated 04/28/14)In City with Twenty-Seven Billionaires, School Employees Want a Living Wage
Over one hundred San Francisco public school teachers, paraprofessionals, and education staff, members of United Educators of San Francisco (UESF), rallied on April 22 at the San Francisco Unified School District school board building. UESF workers are demanding a living wage after an 8-year wage freeze. They want a 21% wage increase and are asking for increased services and support staff. The massive speculative housing bubble is driving workers out of San Francisco and forcing them to commute long distances. After the rally UESF members spoke out at the board meeting.
Many teachers and school staff members are unable to afford healthcare for their families. Meanwhile, the school district spends tens of millions of dollars on consultants and privatization schemes. Protesters said that the district is starving the schools in the poorer areas of San Francisco and forcing education workers to live on poverty wages. This, they added, is happening in a city with twenty-seven billionaires.
