A mermaid joins Marina workers and supporters at a rally before the City Council meeting Tuesday to remind councilmembers of their promise to discuss expanding the living wage to Marina workers at that council meeting. It was not placed on the agenda, however. Demonstrators say they want the issue discussed at the first council meeting in September. Because the city owns the Marina, its tenants would have to pay their workers at the city’s “living wage” standard, according to the city’s new law. However, since those lease negotiations do not come up for a decade or more, the Marina workers would not benefit from the law. So they want the city to find another way to apply the law to them.
