Raising America with Good Jobs

Raise America Logo

125,000 janitors – across the country – decided to stand together in solidarity.

Because of our united front, janitors are winning historic contracts, raising wages for families, and raising standards in communities. For the first time ever, the majority of SEIU janitors – 57 percent – will be paid more than $15.

And we’re just getting started! Stand with janitors, help #RaiseAmerica with good jobs.
