Re Bun Ly’s Story

I work at See’s Candies in the Oakland Airport. After four years, I still make just $9 an hour. That’s not even close to the living wage all Port workers are supposed to get.

I don’t get any health benefits. A couple years ago, I needed surgery on my arm, and I was charged $16,000 for it! I still have that debt, and there’s no way I can pay it off with what I’m earning. Airport workers that have a union have a living wage and free health benefits, so this kind of thing doesn’t happen to them.
