From the Basement to the Boardroom: Los Angeles Should Work for Everyone

A report by UCLA researcher Paul Schimek documents and explains declining wages and conditions for building service workers in the context of the 1980s building boom. SEIU Local 399 highlighted the report's contents during the first years of the Justice for Janitors campaign, and the slogan "Los Angeles Should Work for Everyone" appeared on picket signs and banners.
