THE PLANK SEPTEMBER 17, 2009
From the Boston Globe:
When the housekeepers at the three Hyatt hotels in the Boston area were asked to train some new workers, they said they were told the trainees would be filling in during vacations.
On Aug. 31, staffers learned the full story: None of them would be making the beds and cleaning the showers any longer. All of them were losing their jobs. The trainees, it turns out, were employees of a Georgia company, Hospitality Staffing Solutions, who were replacing them that day.
Being a hotel housekeepers is a tough enough job as it is; being hoodwinked into training the people who'll be taking that tough job is just unconscionable.
