Berhanu Yiferu testified about his struggles paying the rent at a Maryland legislative hearing.
Just a few days later, Prospect Airport Services fired him from his job as a wheelchair agent at BWI Airport.
Berhanu Yiferu is a father of two who worked as a wheelchair attendant at BWI for three years earning just $8 per hour plus unreliable tips.
Prospect Airport Services fired Berhanu just a few days after he testified about his struggles paying the rent and supporting his family at a Maryland legislative hearing in support of the Secure Maryland Wage Act.
This bill would increase wages and provide an option for a health insurance supplement for workers like Berhanu at BWI airport, the Port of Baltimore and Baltimore Penn Station.
Berhanu relies on his job for survival and to support his family.
