Thousands of San Francisco hotel workers , unionists and labor supporters rallied and marched through the streets of San Francisco on October 21, 2018 to demand wages that would allow them to work at one job to survive.

There are seven hotels owned by the Marriott including the former Starwood chain that are on strike in San Francisco with 2,500 workers on the streets picketing 24 hours a day.

The Marriott hotel corporation is the largest in the world with billions of dollars in profits but refuses to provide wages that allow workers to live without working two and three jobs. This action to support the Marriott workers was a national action with protests and marches throughout the country.
