Airline catering and airport workers from Dulles and National Airports joined protesters at Dulles International Airport today to rally against President Trump’s second immigration order, also known as Muslim Ban 2.0. The majority of airline catering and airport workers at Dulles and National Airports are immigrants, including many refugees.
Workers and allies also called on the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) to expand its living wage policy to ensure immigrant and refugee workers can support their families.
“Most of the workers at the D.C. airports are immigrants,” said Aschalew Asabie, a utility worker at the airport. “Many of the food, retail, and airline catering workers at the airport work 2 or even 3 jobs, all at the airport, just to make ends meet.”
