member of Unite Here Local 8
Maria has been working as an airline food worker for 23 years, and has two children. Maria wants airline food companies to give proper equipment to the workers, and wants a higher wage so she can have a better life for her family.
Maria became a leader in her workplace by always helping her coworkers out, and talking to everyone about what’s going on. It’s important to get together so the workers can get their voices heard. Her family and her coworkers motivates her on this campaign. She encourages others just learning about the campaign not to wait, life isn’t going to change unless you fight. We have to do something.
