60,000 Homeless, 20,000 Hotel Vacancies 

Activists estimate there are about 60,000 homeless in LA with about 20,000 nightly vacant rooms.

On July 21, L.A. city attorney Michael Feuer reported that union activists from Unite Here Local 11 collected enough signatures to demand the City take some action on homelessness. 

The LA City council rejected direct action on August 5th by an 11-1 margin with one economically illiterate woke council member voting in favor. 

Voters now get to decide on March 5, 2024.
