At rally and march, New Orleans service industry workers call for better treatment


At a small but lively rally and march Sept. 16 that ended across from New Orleans tourism ground zero Jackson Square, New Orleans Hospitality Workers Committee (NOHWC) and supporters stood up for the rights of the city's service industry workers.

About 75 people attended the event, which was NOHWC's first rally supporting predictable scheduling, higher wages, sick pay, paid breaks, freedom from harassment, access to health care and other benefits ? many of which are standard in many other industries, but denied to service industry workers.

Speakers called for more equitable treatment for the employees who support the city's $7.41 billion tourism industry.?
