Q: How would your life be different if you were not a union member?

A: “I wouldn’t understand what ‘strike’ means, or how it felt to be a part of it. I learned a lot of respect for workers and what unions are all about.”

Q: If you could make a change in the workplace, what would it be?

A: “To be able to, or have time to talk to my co-workers, and educate them on important issues. We don’t have a lot of time at work to discuss things like Weingarten rights and why they should vote No on things like Prop 32.”

Q: What in your life are you most proud of?

A: “My family and my faith.”

Q: What is it you like most about your job?
