Jarrell Reeves, Housekeeping, UPMC Shadyside

Like many of the workers at UPMC, my family struggles because of the low wages and high health care costs. Every day I go to work, I see money spent on fancy renovations and remodeling but my co-workers and I go year after year without even cost of living raises. I know UPMC gets millions of dollars in tax breaks every year, and I know that they make millions of dollars in profit too. When I take my children to the doctor, and I can barely afford to get their prescriptions filled because of the insurance that UPMC offers, I have a very hard time understanding why.
