Public service isn’t just a job, it’s a calling. Unfortunately, even as AFSCME members are working to improve our communities, special interests are lobbying to rob our neighborhoods of the resources needed for high-quality public services.They are privatizing essential services like SNAP benefits and job training and placement.
