Housing, Tenants, Non-Profits, Privatization & Labor
San Francisco is rapidly turning into a city only for the super-rich. While the number of billionaires increase, tens of thousands of working people and small business people are being driven out of the city by speculators and developers who run SF city hall and the state legislature. Working people are being told they can no longer live in the Bay Area.
At the same time, the city is driving to privatize all public housing and turn the operations over to “non-profits” which have appointed boards, and whose workers are very much underpaid compared to public workers. This forum will look at who is benefiting by these policies and how the privatization of public housing will lead to the end of any poor people in public housing.
Panel:
Lynda Carson, Tenant Activist
Tony Robles, Tenant Advocate
Tenants from public housing
Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 General Hospital Chair and COPE Co-Chair
Charles Minster, a member of Senior and Disability Action
Sponsored by United Public Workers For Action
