Support the UNITE HERE! Workers of Hyatt Regency Philadelphia Penn's Landing in their Contract Negotiations!
The major industry in Philadelphia is the Service Industry. Hospitality and Tourism account for most of the money that comes into our city every year, and the workers in this sector deserve their fair share. The people in this industry work hard and take pride in giving our beloved Philadelphia a friendly and comfortable face to the visitors they serve and that we all depend on. These jobs are hard, especially in Hotel Housekeeping where studies show that worker's injuries are on par with Steel Workers.

Public Authorities continue to be one of the best means for taking control out of the hands of voters and putting it in the hands of bureaucrats two or three or four steps removed from anyone elected. I've written about the Taxi Drivers in this space several times now, but now Philly Independent Media Center has a great new video coming out a week or so in advance of a two day taxi strike.
