Sunita Patel, housekeeper at Legacy Emanuel hospital, and Lorna Wood, Certified Nursing Assistant at Legacy Emanuel, speak out about their battles for covid safety, adequate leave, hazard pay, living wages, fair hours, and health care.  In the midst of a union contract campaign and at the bargaining table for the past six months, these two women of color represent other members of their union, SEIU 49, in a fight for racial justice.
