My name is Barbara Hunter. I'm a single mom of two. I work for the City of Riverside and I am a proud union member of SEIU Local 721. I want to tell you why I support the National Fight for $15 and why I think we need it here in the Inland region and in Southern California. I make just a little more than $15 an hour and it's a struggle for me to make ends meet. Every week I have to make difficult choices about where to spend my hard earned money. The price of gas, milk, and healthcare - they all keep going up.
