Three Hyatt hotels in Boston have fired 100 housekeepers and have outsourced cleaning to a contractor, the Boston Globe reports.
Two of the housekeepers the Globe interviewed had worked at the hotels for more than 20 years each and were earning about $15 an hour, hardly an extravagant wage in Boston, but at least they got health benefits. Other Hyatt employees said the new workers, supplied by a Georgia company, are being paid $8 an hour with no benefits.
Sounds to me like those Hyatt hotels (the Hyatt Regency Boston, Hyatt Regency Cambridge and Hyatt Harborside at Logan International Airport ) don’t care much about their employees. Wonder how they feel about their customers.
