“The members of 32BJ are proud to endorse Evandro Carvalho for State Representative of the Fifth Suffolk District. We believe that Evandro will fight for legislation that will improve the lives of working families. As a junior member of the House of Representative, Evandro has been outspoken about the need to raise the minimum wage and a reassuring ally in the campaign to make earned sick time a reality for working folks in Massachusetts, said Roxana Rivera, Director of 32BJ SEIU District 615. “As the MBTA janitors continue to fight devastating job cuts and low-wage airport workers organize for dignity and respect, we know that we’ll have Carvalho on our side.”
