Culinary Workers To Hold Protest
Culinary Workers To Hold Protest

AIR DATE: October 12, 2012

Las Vegas businesses are planning a big event this weekend called "Rediscover Downtown," but thousands of Culinary Union members are taking the opportunity to picket for health and retirement benefits. We look at the worker's demands, and how the protest will affect "Rediscover Downtown."
D. Taylor, the Culinary secretary-treasurer

    I'll go out of my way to patronize a business that the culinary union protests. I've seen them demand a wage increase in a business that wasn't yet breaking even. Taylor's comment about just a nickel & dime increase shows either his ignorance or his desire to deceive the public. When you put those nickel & dimes in real money, like the $70k a year, in a business that isn't highly profitable already, that limits the ability of that business to succeed. These employees we're asked, incredulously, "you'd rather be unemployed than pass on a 5% raise?" Yes. These union members and managers are clearly products of Vegas' terrible school system.
