“I’m proud to contribute to America’s economy as an essential worker—it’s been a long road to get here. El Salvador was my first home, but after a devastating earthquake struck, I was left homeless and with nothing to call my own. Terrified and out of options, I came to the U.S. and was granted a safe haven and work permit through Temporary Protected Status (TPS). I started rebuilding a life for my family.” – Maria Barahona, SEIU Local 2015 Member and Home Care Provider
