The Democratic National Convention was exciting for the political elite and those who owned businesses. But one group of people who isn’t happy about the convention coming to Charlotte are poor families that live in hotels. Hotels, eager to chase the cash that comes in from major events like this one, are jacking up the prices of hotel rooms to rates that the local people can no longer afford. Women like Lakia Ramsey are upset because she and her kids were evicted from the $200 per week hotel room that they’d been staying in until she finds a permanent place to live.
Ramsey has a four-year old son and two-year old daughter, and they were all kicked out of the hotel when the rates suddenly jumped to $150 per night.
