Living Wage Lives on for LAX Hotel Workers

Business and labor leaders have reached an agreement on pay and benefits for workers at a dozen hotels near LAX. The deal was reached just as the City Council was to decide whether to reject a previous agreement for a living wage, or put the matter to the voting public as a referendum. The new ordinance includes several business-friendly gambits, including a phasing in of the higher wage and a provision limiting the raise to hotels around LAX, sparing other private businesses.
