Support the Hotel Workers and Unite Here

I have to give props to the efforts of the hotel workers unions and Unite Here for making the hotel owners stand up and take notice.

These workers deserve better wages and benefits for the type of work they have to perform.

The hospitality industry is a tough one and one that I know I personally couldn't handle. Most people don't understand the amount of crap they have to put up with from rude tourists and always having to make customers happy (even Wally World employees don't have to be this self-sacrificing).

I say during these negotiations be patient if you are traveling and understand these workers are people too and deserve to be treated fairly.

Standing up for your rights should be respected in this country and not looked down upon.

Most of all, if the owners don't come around to meet the needs of the workers then we should boycott those hotels.

But working class folks usually don't stay at Marriott International, Hilton Hotels Corp. and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide...get the picture of what the problem here is folks and it aint' blue collar America, its the elitists.
