Workers Stand Up to UPMC Hospital on MLK DAY

Today is MLK Day 2014, and some inequalities haven’t changed. While the CEO of the “non-profit” institution UPMC makes $6 million/year, many UPMC workers start at $10/hr and struggle to survive. The vigil held this morning by UPMC workers and local spiritual leaders was awe-inspiring. You can join the fight and/or donate to the workers’ efforts at www.MakeItOurUPMC.org   To enjoy all the speeches from the rally, check out the full, uncut event video.
