Boycott! Is Trump's Campaign Hurting His Business?

Workers at Trump's Las Vegas Hotel call for a boycott of all things Trump.

What if a Democrat had this kind of publicity? NY Daily News:

A Nevada restaurant workers union is calling on a nationwide boycott of all things Donald Trump in light of the Republican nominee refusing to negotiate a new contract with more than 500 eligible workers at his high-rise Las Vegas hotel.

“After a disgraceful anti-union campaign against their own workers, the hotel still refuses to negotiate with their employees,” said Geoconda Arguello-Kline, the top officer of the Culinary Union, which represents about 57,000 Las Vegas-area hospitality workers. “We call on allies and workers to stand in solidarity in a national boycott until Donald Trump, the ‘Great Negotiator,’ comes to the table.”

The so-called #BoycottTrump campaign calls on Americans to refrain from eating, sleeping or playing at any of Trump’s many hotels and golf courses.

Looks like other unions may join the boycott:

Donald Trump’s a disrespectful hypocrite, and we stand in solidarity with the workers at Trump Hotel Las Vegas,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. “His unwillingness to bargain with the hard-working people who make his hotel successful is shameful. It tells you all you need to know about his feelings toward all working people.”

In the meantime, Trump's kids appear to see it differently:

I totally believe people are boycotting Trump properties already because they think your dad's an ahole, but it's not the campaign's fault you won't pay your workers what other casinos seem to be able to afford.
