Toronto hotel workers win living wage from Hilton chain

There's no doubt a lot of umbrage being taken among some of Hilton's competitors over this precedent setting deal with UNITE.

Twenty bucks an hour for an immigrant to fluff your pillow?

Surely there are starving immigrants willing to do the job for less?

Congratulations to Local 75 for seeing this through, and a tip of the hat to Hilton for recognizing that your front line folks merit a living wage.

In an era wherein many employers are working overtime to grind down wages, it's more than refreshing to see an employer willing to acknowledge that they wouldn't be anywhere without their workers.
