As part of the Culinary Services team, I worked alongside a team of hardworking and talented people to ensure that Meta’s cafeteria runs smoothly.
I loved my job, and worked hard at Meta to provide for myself and my family for the last five years. But, on Jan 6, 2023 I came into work only to be told that I no longer had my job. I was not the only one — over 100 of my coworkers across Meta’s campuses in the Bay Area had also received the same news.
My name is Marisol Mora. Last month, over 100 of my workers and I were laid off from our job at the Meta (Facebook) cafeteria in Menlo Park where we make sure that hundreds of Meta’s engineers, project managers and other employees are served lunch, coffee and other meals. Now, we’re calling for Meta to support us through this difficult transition — like they did with their full-time employees.
My coworkers and I work hard in our jobs and deserve security and stability — we are calling on Meta to give us a severance package that reflects the hard work and dedication we have put into our jobs over the years including severance pay, healthcare contributions, and recall rights. We need your support!
Earlier this month, Meta stocks rose by over $100 billion — Meta’s stockholders and executives are lining their pockets while working people like us struggle to care for our families. Meta has always assured its tech employees and users of their commitment towards diversity and inclusion, and racial and economic equity. But their current attitude to the working people like us — who are disproportionately Black and Brown — are a harsh reminder that Meta’s support to working people is conditional.
Sign this petition to demand that Meta listen to us, and provide us with the safety net that we need to get through this difficult time.
