Mayor John DeStefano rallied with workers calling for fair wages to clean downtown buildings—including the mayor’s own City Hall.

“I’m proud to work in a building with [SEIU union local] 32BJ workers,” the mayor said at a demonstration Wednesday afternoon in front of City Hall on Church Street. “Together, there’s nothing we can’t do.”
