Last week, Adriana Vasquez, a janitor in Houston, went to Washington to ask JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon why his company can’t afford to pay her a living wage. Often having to run between floors to clean enough bathrooms before the end of her shift, Ms. Vasquez, a single mother of three, is paid only $8.35 an hour. The Nation’s Greg Kaufmann wrote about Ms. Vasquez last week, and appeared on NPR’s Here and Now to talk about the struggles of service workers, and just how cold-hearted millionaire CEOs can be.
