Cruise ship workers strike while docked in SF
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- There is an ongoing strike aboard a cruise ship docked in San Francisco this weekend.
Some 40 waiters walked off their jobs on the "Costa Deliziosa." They were angry at being paid in dollars instead of the Euros they were promised in their contracts, and other working conditions aboard the ship.
"Sue this company, because they are taking lots of money from us, not only for the salary, even the food they give us is for a pig or dog," waiter Eduardo Garcia told ABC7.
The ship's owner, Costa North America, says it is trying to resolve the issue. The Costa Deliziosa is owned by the same company which owns the Costa Concordia which sank two weeks ago off the Tuscan Coast.
