More than 100 janitors are expected to practice their First Amendment
rights and urge U.S. Senator Herb Kohl
to support legislation making quality health care affordable for working families, the story stated.
The SEIU, which represents the janitors, claims that millions of Americans are at risk of seeing health insurance become unaffordable and ultimately unattainable, the story noted.
Though the janitors who clean downtown Milwaukee office buildings reached a tentative one-year agreement in their recent contract negotiations with building owners, skyrocketing health care costs are working against efforts to improve janitors'' jobs, the story added.
According to the story, the only way to ensure quality care for future hardworking Americans is to push for health care reform legislation.
