Commercial Janitors In Miami Fight For Higher Wages

08 Jan 2020 9:15 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)

The protest signs read “Could you live on $8.46 cents?”

About 24 janitors, mostly women, marched and held up brooms in front of  Miami’s tallest office tower — the Southeast Financial Center in the heart of downtown. 

A commercial janitor holds a broom with a sign that reads 'Justice' in Spanish. Commercial cleaners in Miami are part of a new push to unionize, decrying low wages.

Most large office buildings outsource their janitorial services to cleaning companies. Those companies often hire contract workers. Compared to other parts of the state, South Florida’s contracted office cleaners earn among the lowest wages and there's a new push to unionize this workforce. 

Commercial janitors  in Miami-Dade  are predominantly immigrant women from across Latin America and the Caribbean. They typically earn less than $9 an hour.
