UNITE HERE Local 19 workers energetically continue to strike for the twelfth day at the San Jose Marriott Hotel in downtown San Jose to negotiate a better contract. The workers demand a livable wage, job safety, and job protections as some Marriott Hotel are using robot workers. Many working class workers in Silicon Valley often have to work 2-3 jobs to pay for the high housing costs and other living expenses.
