Justice for Philly Airport Workers

While US Airways makes record profits, many of the men and women who provide important passenger services at the Philadelphia International Airport are left in poverty.

As a major hub for US Airways, more than 600 planes take off from the Philadelphia International Airport every day. While US Airways makes record profits, many of the men and women who provide important passenger services at the Philadelphia International Airport are left in poverty. Over the last few years, thousands of baggage handlers, skycaps, wheelchair attendants, cabin cleaners and security officers have raised their voices to demand fair wages and respect on the job. Whether they’re speaking out at City Council or a US Airways shareholders meeting, Philly airport workers are bravely calling attention to the city’s broken subcontracting system and calling for solutions that turn poverty jobs into good jobs.
