The employees at Trump's Las Vegas hotel won the right to unionize, but say Trump's refused to come to the bargaining table, so Unite HERE a labor group representing hotel and hospitality workers, was out in front of the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC urging a boycott of the new DC hotel. "We demand respect! And that's why I'm out here. I got my respect at my job when we won the union. I have rights. The workers in Las Vegas, they don't have rights. They need for Donald Trump to actually sit down. If he wants to make America great again he needs to start there!" (WTOP/Kate Ryan)
