Humans of Downey - Donna (Grandma)


"My next great adventure is my retirement next year. My mom, who turns 80 years old today, wants to go see Mount Rushmore, so we have planned a road trip. We are going to go through the southern states and then head up to South Dakota to see the national park. On the way, we'll visit some friends in Georgia and my step-father in Alabama.

"But, while I'm still here working, I'm going to continue to fight for justice in our workplace. I do that by listening to my coworkers when they are having issues with their management. Right now, I've been blessed with good management above me, but some of my coworkers aren't that lucky. It's disheartening when you see others that aren't rich—they have to work, they have to come here every day—and they're mistreated. It's sad when people misuse their power towards others. I'm always an advocate to help others solve those issues. I know the union rules and help them to know their rights and how they can respond to the injustice. I advise them to try this or that. Sometimes it works but sometimes it doesn't. Just being a good listener will help some people at times. If they don't get it off their chest, it will eat at them to no good."
