All City Employees Need a Raise:
City workers in San Antonio are some of the lowest paid public employees in Texas.
The City Can Afford a Fair Wage Increase
SEIU research shows that although between 1998- 2000 the City of San Antonio predicted a deficit, there was no deficit in any of those years. What happened?
We're waiting for the year to date figures from 2001 to see if the same pattern held true. There is no reason to expect that deficits will actually occur in 2002. What is clear is that a surplus of over $81 million is enough to cover any deficits possible as well as fund real across the board increases for all employees.
Get Involved to Win a Fair Wage Increase
With support from SEIU Local 100, city employees are uniting to bring the truth about the budget to our co-workers, communities, and city council representatives.
SEIU is helping us circulate a petition for an across-the-board wage increase for all employees, hold work site meetings, and make our voices heard for fair wages in City Hall.
HERE'S WHAT WE CAN DO:
