Fighting for the right to fair pay, safe and reasonable working conditions, and the ability to join a union and bargain collectively is something I have done and will continue to do for the working people of Los Angeles.
I was proud to stand with hotel workers in my community this year as they fought for adequate pay, reasonable hours, and protections from sexual assault. We passed a standard-setting ordinance that required local employers to fairly compensate, protect, and honor the work and dignity of their employees. We worked together to raise the minimum wage and included paid leave protections as part of their employment benefits.
As a Mayor and Councilmember, I have a long track record of advocating for safer work practices, fair wages, and more equitable work hours, especially in times of great uncertainty, like the COVID-19 pandemic. As Supervisor, I will continue to be an ally to and champion for working people.
