Jan Williams, School Bus Driver
When I first became a school bus driver in 1998, it was a nonunion job. I earned as little as $7 an hour and had to work from early morning until late at night. When I became a bus driver with the Los Angeles Unified School District, my wages immediately jumped by $10 an hour more and I got healthcare, sick days, and vacation for my family. The big difference was that I now had a good union job.
This progress and the promise of a better future for our country drives me to stick with my union. As union members, we are working for justice, to raise the bar for everyone, and for equality and opportunity for all. That makes me really proud.
