Visitors bring money here. But it leaves.
To hotel companies. To developers. To investors.
By 2018, Local 5 hotels will pay workers an average of almost $31 per hour. The non-union hotels pay $19 per hour—40% less. Non-union hotel workers also face unfair workloads and lousy treatment. Only 45% of hotels on Oahu are union. That means the majority of workers in Hawaii’s #1 industry are non-union.
A union contract makes a real difference in people’s lives. Not-yet-union hotels in Waikiki are ready to stand up and organize for their right to join the union. The community must back up these workers.
Local 5 hotel workers won wages and benefits worth $31 per hour.
But too many local people whose work pays Hawaii’s bills can’t pay their own.
We are Waikiki!
