Heads Up, Burglars: San Francisco Security Guards to Rally at 4 p.m. Today
Today at 4 p.m. San Francisco security guards will march through the Financial District, demanding better wages, better benefits, and a little more respect protecting the city's commercial businesses.
Clear your calendars, thieves and miscreants, so you can get to work at 4 p.m.
SEIU United Workers West represents some 3,000 security guards in San Francisco who say they are disgruntled by the $15 per hour they get in exchange for protecting the city's multi-million-dollar office and tech buildings.
The guards' master contract with private security companies expired last month and they are now fighting for a decent raise.
According to SEIU:
While high tech prospers and the San Francisco commercial real estate market soars, economic conditions for working and middle-class Californians are largely stagnant. Working together towards better pay and stable jobs is a way to uplift their families and their communities.
Officers and their supporters (aka people who pay for items before leaving the store) will meet at the corner of Bush and Sansome streets at 4 p.m. sharp where they will march through rush hour traffic in the Financial District. The rally will end at One Post Plaza.
