(KTLA) – Taylor Swift’s planned concerts at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood have been delayed until the partnership conveys thousands of Southern California hotel housekeepers’ demands that they accept”a living wage.”
On Thursday, UNITE HERE Local 11 released an open letter to the pop icon in the Los Angeles Times. “We provide clean rooms and attend to every demand of guests. We provide the best services to our guests. Your performances get in a lot of cash for our hotels,” the letter claims. Because you are coming, hotels in
Los Angeles is boosting their rates by two or three times. Like Ticketmaster, they also tack on unneeded costs to hotel stays. As they negotiate for higher pay and benefits, hotel employees have organized labor protests throughout the Los Angeles area since the start of July.
Additionally, they have joined striking Hollywood actors and writers on the picket lines. According to specialists, Swift’s 52-night, 20-city tour will earn the most money ever.
Also, the inrush of Swifties holding up hotel rooms at excessive prices has a considerable negative economic impact on every location she visits. She is planning to perform at SoFi Stadium on August 3 for six nights. The administrators of the union are expecting Swift would back their motivation.
At a march on Thursday in front of the Hyatt Regency at LAX, Ada Briceno, co-president of UNITE HERE Local 11, stated, “She has taken on a corporate desire to make sure artists get reasonably paid and that those behind-the-scenes in her music get the treatment they deserve.”There is no sign that the pop diva would cancel her Inglewood performances. A Thursday request for comment from KTLA did not instantly receive a response.
