Protesters ask for higher wages for cleaners outside Ellis School fundraiser dinner

09 Oct 2017 10:36 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)
PITTSBURGH —Protesters at the Ellis School in Shadyside say newly replaced janitorial staff at the school will be paid "poverty wages."

The group gathered outside the school during a fundraising dinner and expressed dismay at the school's decision not to rehire its janitorial staff when their contract expired at the end of July. Instead, the school hired a new cleaning crew and pays them $7.75 per hour.

"Think about how much these people are making," said Alyce Toombs, a member of the old janitorial staff. "They're not making $25,000 a year .. I believe that at $7.75, these people might be making $12,000 or $13,000 a year... And who can live on that?"
