Quintero taking workers' side saddens
I read with dismay in your March 15 issue that our City Councilman Frank Quintero is ardently taking the side of the striking workers at the Hilton Glendale hotel ("Hilton workers air labor grievances"). It's always been my understanding that our elected officials were to represent all of our citizens equally. Apparently there is a personal benefit to Quintero that we are not aware of or he would not be outspoken in the favor of the strikers.
In a free society it's always been that if you don't like your job, that you quit and seek another one. To use force and violence to meet the pay scale that you presume you are worth is contrary to the American tradition. In a free market we are all paid what we are worth. And many of us are not happy with that reality. If you want higher pay prove your skills and your ability. And higher pay will seek you out.
