    Default Bank Tellers Affraid To Organize

    New York, NY - Low-wage bank tellers and associated support staffers forced onto public assistance and unable to afford even a box of diapers for their children - are still too frightened to organize for better working conditions, according to a worldwide coalition now seeking to unite the downtrodden U.S. workforce.

    Around the world, bank tellers in countries From Malaysia to the United Kingdom collectively bargain for better pay and improved working conditions. But not here in America, where virtually none of the those comparable workers - more than a third of which exist at or below the poverty line - belongs to a union.

    We have pretty much lived on one income. I wanted to stay home and raise my daughter since her dad was out in the truck all of the time. It has been tough at times but we did it. But I know we were only able to do it because my husband had good paying trucking jobs and we also made some sacrifices. When ABF laid him off for two years, it was a disaster. I have always done little side jobs to supplement but I know we are very fortunate to have been able to do this.
