The Good Jobs for Good Airports Act would take necessary steps to guarantee airport service workers a living wage, benefits, and health care by creating high-road labor standards for airports receiving federal dollars. Specifically, the Good Jobs for Good Airports Act would require that small, medium, and large airport hubs provide airport service workers—including service workers employed by food and retail vendors—prevailing wages and benefits.
Airport service workers are the backbone of American aviation. From cleaning planes and handling baggage, to protecting airports and performing maintenance, service workers keep airline infrastructure up and running. Securing better and more stable working conditions in our airports will not only advance a just economy, but will support this essential workforce in providing a 21st century transportation system to keep passengers safe and on-time.
