WE STAND IN SOLIDARITY

after 9/11 New Yorkers came to realize 
that they need experienced people to keep their eyes on their prize
their airports, professional sports venues and historical landmark sites
require a strong security force to watch over them day and night

we are now an essential part of everyday society
we keep the people safe and protect their property
at one time they called us rent-a- cops but not any more
we are visible everywhere even at the 99 cent store

we are the front line defenders and we work hard everyday
yet why do some people feel that we don't deserve a decent pay?
we are the security officers of 32BJ and we stand in solidarity
to make New York a safer place and a stronger community
