“After high school, I wasn’t sure what to do. I did a semester of community college and then came and worked at U Market Services, and I’ve been here for four years. The social aspect is the best part of working here for sure. It’s such an accepting, inclusive environment, and I enjoy engaging with my coworkers every day. 

“When COVID hit, I was grateful for the stability of my job. I felt safe, like I could depend on the U to take care of us. 

“I’m only 21, so I’m not sure what’s next for me. Someday I’d love to study anthropology since I find cultures fascinating. I might take classes toward my first bachelor’s degree for free through the Regents Scholarship, or maybe I’ll work my way up to a manager role. We’ll see.”—Seth Lopez, Stories Specialist, Teamsters 320
