Hiram Rodriguez told Miami-Dade commissioners on July 24, 2018, he works two jobs at Miami International Airport but the pay isn't enough to get by. Backed by the Unite Here labor union, he urged commissioners to approve a living-wage rule at MIA requiring retailers, restaurants and other vendors to pay workers a living wage, currently at about $15 an hour. The measure passed.
