An ordinance adding Article 6 to Chapter XVIII of the Los Angeles Municipal Code requiring a minimum wage for hotel workers and repealing Article 4 of Chapter X of the Los Angeles Municipal Code. The City has made significant financial investments to create a climate that has allowed the hospitality industry to thrive in Los Angeles. For example, the City assists in providing and maintaining free public tourist attractions and in helping to build and maintain the public transportation system that carries visitors around the City, including to and from hotels. The City\'s investments have helped the hospitality industry, which has enjoyed three consecutive years of growth, achieve an occupancy rate of 78 percent (far better than the national average of 62 percent) and a \"revenue per room available\" rate of $111 — a 14 year high for Los Angeles. Because hotels receive benefits from City assets and investments and because the City and its tourist industry benefit from hotels with experienced and content workers with low turnover, it is fair and reasonable that hotels pay their employees a fair wage. It will benefit the local economy and benefit City visitors, residents and businesses.
