PROTECT HOSPITALITY IN LOS ANGELES
Los Angeles’s hospitality workers and businesses are facing a dangerous, irresponsible, and costly new threat –
The Homeless in Hotels Ordinance.
LA’s homelessness crisis is a product of decades of failed policies. Our government leaders must work to fix it, not put the burden on Los Angeles’s business owners with a flawed measure like the Homeless in Hotels Ordinance. The measure will only worsen the cost of living crisis in LA and hurt working families at a time when they can least afford it.
Threatens Los Angeles’s Economy and Jobs
Los Angeles’s tourism and hospitality industry is a vital part of our local economy, providing life-long careers and supporting working families across the city. A recent independent economic survey confirmed the ordinance will be disastrous for LA’s economy:
- $2.4 billion in lost economic activity for the city of Los Angeles.
- Loss of 15,271 good-paying jobs in the tourism, hospitality, construction, retail, restaurant, and arts and entertainment sectors.
- $1.3 billion decrease in visitor spending, just as our local and minority-owned businesses are still recovering from the devastating impacts of the pandemic.
Join Our Coalition
Please list me/my organization as a PUBLIC OPPONENT of the Homeless in Hotels Ordinance — which would place unhoused individuals in any vacant hotel room in the City of Los Angeles, even rooms that are next to paying guests.
