Bharat has been working as an airline food worker for over a year and a half. Originally from India, Bharat helps to translate for his coworkers, and one of his favorite parts of the job is getting to know all of his coworkers and helping people understand the union. Bharat is fed up because the airline companies make $35 billion in profits, yet their employees work hard to make delivery times and don’t get fairly compensated. People who work should have good pay.
Bharat encourages other workers to join the fight because we’re fighting for the true thing, the right thing, and to overcome the initial fear of standing up for yourself. Bharat encourages people just learning about the campaign to wake up, fight for their rights. We work for the airlines, so why won’t they work for us?
