Everyone in the commonwealth relies on services provided by the state government, and the workers providing them are our friends, neighbors and family. They help children in crisis, defend those who cannot afford an attorney, keep our water and air clean and provide other critical public services that build a stronger commonwealth for all of us. 

But the state has not reciprocated, chronically underpaying them, leading to a mass exodus of public servants, and a crisis for the services they provide.
