SICK: Los Angeles Prepping To Replace Striking Hotel Employees With Criminal Illegal Aliens…

It has been reported that several Los Angeles hotels are substituting unionized American workers who are on strike with illegal immigrants.

What a terrible way to add insult to injury!

Is the notion of Los Angeles as a sanctuary city still popular among its residents? Is it satisfying to see them supplanted in this way?

The Los Angeles Times reports:

 

When Norelis Vargas heard about housekeeping work at a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport, she did not hesitate to sign up.

Vargas, 39, who migrated from Venezuela and entered the U.S. about three months ago seeking asylum, had been living with her husband and four children at Union Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter on Skid Row, and needed the income. But when she arrived at Four Points by Sheraton on Oct. 6, Vargas said she was surprised to find a group of hotel employees picketing.

Vargas is among those from Skid Row’s migrant population who have been recruited in recent weeks to work at unionized hotels in Santa Monica and near Los Angeles International Airport where workers have gone on strike. In addition to the Four Points by Sheraton hotel, migrants were hired at the Le Meridien Delfina Santa Monica and the Holiday Inn LAX, according to interviews with migrants employed as temporary workers and organizers with Unite Here Local 11.

Now Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. George Gascón is launching an investigation into working conditions for migrants hired at hotels based on information brought to him by Unite Here Local 11, which represents workers involved in the largest U.S. hotel strike. Gascón said he is concerned about potential wage theft and violations of child labor law.

Here’s a video report:

It’s amusing that the local government is fussing over the workers’ hours and salaries. That is not even close to being the primary problem.
