San Mateo County’s economic gap called “unacceptable” 

Posted by SEIU Local 521 on 08/08/2014 

Residents and workers of San Mateo County are coming together to press county leaders to address the widening economic gap that is turning the county into a virtual gated community.

On Tuesday, Aug. 5, community activists packed the Board of Supervisors chamber and called attention to alarming statistics that show the economic recovery has not reached working families in San Mateo County.

County worker Jeff Weaver referred to the county’s own “shared vision” of creating affordable housing and enriching lives of people in the community.

“How can we take stock in that if we can’t afford to raise our families in the community? My cohorts and I serve this fine community but cannot enjoy the fruits of our labor.”
