VIDEO: Organizing Takes Flight
One set of workers at the airport make a living wage, have benefits, and paid time off. The other set make near minimum wage, have no paid time off and company health care benefits are too expensive. What's the difference, virtually nothing except their employer and their union status. Now, non-union workers at the airport who clean planes and transport passengers for airline subcontractors are organizing to get the same job protections and wages as their counterparts employed by other companies doing business at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
