Oakland Airport Security Gets A Raise

Security workers at Oakland International Airport are getting a raise.

It´s a move designed to
improve security.

The Oakland Port Commission voted on the raise yesterday.

Contractors who hire security workers at checkpoints will now
have to pay workers 10 dollars an hour with benefits, or 11.25 without. Right now, the average wage of a security screener is six dollars an hour.
