“I’m going to the Rally for Raises because things need to get better. For the last four years, workloads have increased, but we are still getting paid the same.”
Cesar Ortiz, Cal Works Intake 

SEIU 721 Vice President Linda Dent is leading the rallies with a message that is clear – “500 isn’t going to do it. 1,000 isn’t going to do it. There are 55,000 LA County Members. We want thousands in the streets so the Board of Supervisors will know we are serious. Four years is too long to wait for a raise.”Maritza Maldanado head.jpg

“We can barely get by on this paycheck. I have five kids! I’m going to the Rally for Raises because LA County needs to know that my family needs a raise.”

Maritza Maldanado, LA County DPSS Clerk
