On Oct. 16, 2010, Chicago Hilton hotel workers, members of UNITE HERE Local 1, went on a 3 day strike to protest working without a contract. They called it a "Taxpayers Strike" to draw attention to the fact that Hilton received $180 million in bailout funds (from taxpayers like the hotel workers) while trying to impoverish and overwork their employees. Similar actions are taking place at Hilton hotels in San Francisco and Honolulu. Scenes and interviews. Length - 3:55. Produced by Labor Beat. Labor Beat is a CAN TV Community Partner.
