SF Supervisors vote to shelter the unhoused in hotels

Bloomberg (read the full story here): San Francisco would rent 8,250 hotel rooms by April 26 as temporary quarantine facilities under a measure the Board of Supervisors approved Tuesday. The emergency ordinance would be in effect for three months and cost more than $180 million. It would give priority to house homeless people as well as front-line health-care and homeless-services workers. Local 2 wants city contracts with a hotel or food-service facility to guarantee basic worker rights, including health-care coverage from the first day for workers and enforced health-and-safety and wage-and-hour protections.
