Opposition

  • The editorial board of the Long Beach Press-Telegram opposed Measure N, writing, "Dig a little deeper, and you'll find an attempt to regulate private businesses and a blatant power grab by a Los Angeles union that has unsuccessfully tried to organize Long Beach's hotel workers for nearly two decades. Measure N targets only 15 hotels in Long Beach, requiring them to pay a minimum of $13 per hour to workers, along with an automatic 2 percent annual raise - even if there's an economic downturn or the hotel is losing business."[1]

Ballot question

The question on the ballot:

Measure N: "Shall the ordinance which establishes minimum wages and minimum sick leave payable to hotel workers, be adopted?"[2]
