Bronx and city day care workers enter day two of strike for better pay
Thousands of Bronx and city day care workers picketed again Thursday for day two of their three-day strike.
Some workers took their fight for a new contract to the streets of the Bronx where some centers have stayed open despite the strike. One union member said centers that remain open are not supporting an initiative that will benefit the workers.
The day care workers say their last contract expired three years ago, and the last time they had a raise was four years ago. Many workers say they have master's degrees but make less than some starting public school teachers. In addition to better pay, the day care workers want more vacation time.
Some of the workers say they will rally beyond the three-days if it's necessary.
