Workers at a downtown hotel owned and operated by Portland State University say they have faced extortion, lost wages to ghost employees and had their tips stolen by supervisors.
The workers tell WW that their bosses—all PSU employees—have created a culture of cronyism that has allowed them to hire their own relatives to work at the University Place Hotel. One worker says he had to pay kickbacks to his supervisor in order to get hired. And workers say they have been told to clean the university-owned Dunthorpe home of PSU President Wim Wiewel.
