The CEO of the YWCA, Diana Taylor, says she was unable to sign the checks because she was out with a bad back. However, she told us the drivers would get paid on Monday.
As a result of the walk off, the YWCA had to call in volunteers to deliver its Meals on Wheels. The program delivers 1,000 meals a day on 32 routes. The program funding comes through a contract with the City of Houston as well as private donations and the United Way.
