Raising the standard for good working conditions is like a chain reaction. More people will see their work life can be better.

Raising Standards for Baltimore Security

We work hard at a dangerous job keeping students and the public in Baltimore safe every day, but we can’t even put food on the table or the pay bills.

~ Regina Banks

Private security officers in Baltimore are launching a new campaign to improve standards for nearly 1,000 workers citywide who earn as little as $9 an hour, drastically below Baltimore’s Living Wage of $10.59. Officers who work in Baltimore are over three times more likely than all people who work in Baltimore to receive public health insurance and three times more likely to receive food stamps. Together, we are fighting to help raise standards for all workers, their families and communities.
