A noisy crowd of union protesters demonstrated outside San Francisco´s Ritz Carlton hotel last night while Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was inside hosting a fundraiser.
Members of the state´s biggest nurses union were joined by teachers, firefighters, police officers and others. About 2,000 people were on hand to protest the governor´s efforts to get a series of reform packages on the ballot. Inside the Ritz, guests paid at least $1,000 a plate to dine with the governor. The money will be used to help Schwarzenegger qualify four government reform proposals for a special election in the fall.
