Mayor Lee: Support the Middle Class in San Francisco
The City of San Francisco depends on skilled professionals like Neal Patel, Robin Ho and all of the other unsung heroes who keep our city running. But keeping up with the skyrocketing cost of living is a struggle for them. That’s why the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE), Local 21 is calling for a 5% cost of living increase as they negotiate a new contract with the City.

During the economic recession, these city employees tightened their belts along with the rest of us. Today, their wage levels are lagging 11% behind the cost of living. Please urge Mayor Ed Lee to support the middle class and help ensure these skilled professionals remain in our community and help keep San Francisco the place we all love.
