Trump’s Vegas hotel to be walled in by taco trucks

Or Dada comes to Sin City.

The story from teleSUR English:

The Culinary Workers Union is planning to construct a wall made of Taco Trucks outside of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s hotel in Las Vegas hours before Wednesday’s third and final debate with Hillary Clinton.

The union, also known as UNITE HERE local 226, plans to build the wall using at least five taco trucks outside the Trump International Hotel, which is close to the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, or UNLV, the location for tonight’s third and final presidential debate.

The mostly Latino union says that Trump, who has a 50 percent share in the company, has been exploiting local hotel and casino workers and refuses to recognize their union and enter into collective bargaining. Workers have said that they get paid less than others with similar positions working on the Las Vegas strip.

“We’re reminding Mr. Trump that immigrant workers here and across the country will be watching the debate and voting in November,” Yvanna Cancela, the union’s political director, told Buzzfeed.

The union will be joined by a number of other immigrant and activists organizations, with some traveling to the event from Los Angeles.
