Disneyland Resort housekeepers, security guards and food workers marched on Anaheim city hall this morning to celebrate another victory in the fight for a living wage. They brought with them eight boxes filled with roughly 22,000 signatures from registered voters in the city. For weeks, canvassers knocked on doors soliciting support for putting a $15 minimum wage increase for subsidized companies in the Anaheim resort on the November ballot.
“When we first filed the initiative less than a month ago, we were confident that the Anaheim residents would be with us,” said Ada Briceño, co-president of Unite Here Local 11, at the press conference. “Today is May Day, International Workers Day, and what a better way to celebrate the working people of Anaheim than this?”
