A Valentine for workers


A delegation of faith leaders, workers and students delivered a Valentine to UCSD hospital management, Feb. 14, asking them to have a heart by paying livable wages to workers. The group delivered a booklet of Valentines and workers’ stories to Ann Finan, director of employee and labor relations. UCSD workers are asking for pay increases that reflect what they say are market rates for their positions. The delegation was organized by the Interfaith Committee for Worker Justice and UCSD Associated Students and was led by Rabbi Laurie Coskey. “I believe that Ms. Finan was listening and listening carefully to the people that work for her,” Rabbi Coskey said, “We were hoping that she would take the time to engage with them, and she did.”
