City of Long Beach Minimum Wages for Hotel Workers, Measure N (November 2012)
November 6, 2012 ballot for voters in the City of Long Beach in Los Angeles County, where it was approved.
Measure N established minimum wages and minimum sick leave payable to hotel workers.
- Final official results from the Los Angeles County elections office.
- 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."
The question on the ballot:
|Measure N: "Shall the ordinance which establishes minimum wages and minimum sick leave payable to hotel workers, be adopted?"|
- Long Beach Press-Telegram, "Measure N is an ill-conceived effort by L.A. groups to force Long Beach hotels to unionize," October 19, 2012
