Oaklanders Deserve a Lifetime of Clean Air & Good Jobs.  We Can't Wait Any Longer! 

  • Port drivers work 11-14 hours a day for as little as $8 an hour.
  • Port drivers do not receive health or pension benefits.
  • While waiting in line, engines idle, and drivers and residents breathe cancer causing fumes.
  • Due to diesel pollution, West Oaklanders' risk of cancer is more than double that of other Bay Area residents.
