Marriott employee strikes by day, delivers food by night

Larrilou Carumba has worked at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis for more than six years as a housekeeper. When her union, UNITE HERE Local 2, voted to go on strike on Oct. 4, 2018, she had just moved her family out of their apartment and into her sister’s home to save some money for a new place after her landlord raised her rent. She also started driving around delivering food using the DoorDash app for extra cash at night, often with her two sons, Louie Lopez, 9, and Elbert Lopez, 11, along with her.
