Unite Here Local 11 Wants to Eliminate Hotel Jobs

LA WATCHDOG – The weaponized initiative that was placed on the March primary ballot by Unite Here Local 11 will result, if approved by the City’s voters, in many of its members joining the ranks of the unemployed. (See ballot measure summary below.)
This measure would establish the Hotel Housing Voucher Program where the City would issue prepaid vouchers to place homeless individuals and families in vacant hotel rooms that hotels would be required to accept. This is a disaster waiting to happen.
Just imagine if a deranged homeless person occupying a vacant hotel room injured or killed an out-of-town guest or a unionized hotel employee. Or if a video went viral of a homeless individual going bonkers in the lobby of a major hotel in DTLA or Hollywood.
