Rally in Cupertino for Good Jobs & Equality

1 Infinite Loop, Apple HQ
with Jesse Jackson
This year Reverend Jackson pushed tech companies to release demographic figures revealing appallingly low percentages of employees who are Black, Latino and women calling the battle for job parity “the fourth stage of the civil rights movement.” (USA Today) We all see every day in our neighborhoods how the Bay Area tech driven economy is not providing good jobs to the people in our communities who need them the most.
Tech companies do create some jobs that go mostly to people of color: contracted service jobs in janitorial & security. But tech CEOs are leaving our Black and Latino communities behind by hiring low-road contractors that pay low wages and benefits. (USA Today)
Together we can challenge income inequality by holding big tech accountable! Let’s build a bay area economy where all workers and their families can thrive!
