Act Now to Support Los Angeles Hospitality Workers!

    1. Petition by

      Jourdan Card

      Los Angeles, CA

Tourism is LA's number one employer, but it's also home to one of the city's largest low-wage sectors, hospitality. Currently 40 percent of LA's hospitality workers live below twice the federal poverty limit.

We need city leaders to stand up for working Angelenos and move quickly to schedule a joint hearing on August 15 of the Trade, Commerce and Tourism Committee and the Housing, Community and Economic Development Committee.

This hearing will be the first step in moving forward a real vision for the Los Angeles tourism industry through the Destination LA policy. Destination LA is focused on strengthening the industry, but also the workers and the communities who make Los Angeles a world-class destination.

      This is a no brainer and failing to act reflects lack of moral decency. I'm sure councilmember LaBonge wouldn't want to paint himself as such. He needs to take leadership on this issue asap!
