Thousands Left With No Job

6,000 people lost their jobs after a contract expired between 30 hotels late Monday. “Layoffs” and “overtime” continue to be an on-going concern for the hotel industry. One of the hotels laid off 19% of its staff from November 2008 and March 2009. During this time, a striking 46% of the remaining staff had to work overtime. The union is now asking the hotel to restore the much needed jobs.
