City Inside/Out: Initiative 124 (Hotel Workers) Debate

POLL: Do you support I-124 (Hotel Workers)?

Over half the hotel housekeepers surveyed in a Seattle poll say they've been sexually harassed on the job. Are panic buttons the solution? And should the accused guests be banned from those hotels? Initiative 124 would mandate hotel safety standards, regulate the workload of housekeepers and increase their access to healthcare. How is the hotel industry responding? Hear both sides of the issue.

On the show:
Ida Calderon, Hotel Worker
Yan Deng, Hotel Worker
Morgan Hickel, Seattle Hotel Association
Rebecca Saldana, Executive Director, Puget Sound Sage
Shannon Sheron, General Manager, Motif Seattle
Heather Weiner, Yes on I-124
