Wendy Greuel is now promising hotel workers $15 an hour as a minimum wage at their hotels in return for their unionized voting bloc support.
What a vile election season this has become.
From the LA Times.......
The union representing hotel workers in Los Angeles has been out in force campaigning for Wendy Greuel for mayor. In large part that's because union leaders said Greuel told them she supports their proposal to impose a $15-an-hour minimum wage at big hotels in the city.
To fire up their workers, and voters, about the wage plan, United Here, Local 11, composed a mariachi-style song that it played over the weekend from a pickup equipped with loudspeakers.
Union officials translated the Spanish lyrics into English. Here's a portion of the words:
"If for la Wendy you want to vote
Get in the car and let's have fun.
And for la Wendy to win
All Latinos got to have her back.
If you want to earn $15 an hour
You have to march for la Wendy.
If the blond comes to your door
Open the door and let her in.
Wendy, la Wendy we're gonna vote.
$15 an hour we'll make.
Wendy, la Wendy we're gonna dance.
Eric Garcetti start crying.
From Montecito to Huntington Park
Passing El Sereno, eating tamales
And the voters for you will fight.
We'll have extra money to spend.
The people will support you.
That's why the blond will triumph.
In the truck we'll celebrate
With the mariachis we'll sing
Her last name is difficult to sing
That's why we're writing this rhyme.
La Wendy, Los Angeles you will change
And the Latino vote will crown you."
