SEIU members have zeroed in on the Maryland capitol in their fight for voting rights and living wages. 1199-sponsored legislation allowing Marylanders to register to vote on Election Day passed the House of Delegates with 91 votes last week after intense lobbying from workers. “A similar measure passed the State Senate last year,” said the union. “But we cannot take anything for granted. Call your State Senator.” 32BJ members, alongside BWI Airport contracted workers, testified for a $15/hour living wage at the State Senate this week. “All workers who keep our airports running, clean, and secure deserve living wages,” the union said. The Maryland Fight for $15 campaign was launched in January; click here to learn more and plug into the campaign.
