My name is Ana Arevalo. I work for Eurest cleaning a Home Depot. I have four children that live with me and I also support my mother and my sister in my country because they don’t have work.
The wages that we are paid here, cleaning stores, is not enough even to pay my own rent and electricity bills, much less to go to the doctor if my kids get sick. So I have to have two jobs. For the last several months I have been without electricity trying to figure out how to feed my kids.
This is why I decided to fight. I am fighting for my kids. Fighting for their well- being and so they can do well in school. I want to fight so we can all make a fair wage and be able to work just one job and spend time educating and supporting our kids. They need their mothers. That’s why we have no choice but to fight.
