    Hotel workers rallied today downtown today.

    San Francisco's hotel workers took to the streets today to protest the layoffs, reduced hours, and healthcare cuts they have endured as a result of the recession.

    Hundreds of workers in the hospitality industry gathered near the Hyatt Regency Hotel around 11:00 a.m. and marched around San Francisco's downtown hotels.

    A labor contract affecting about 9,000 hotel workers expired in August. Workers said they hope the protest will convince hotels to create a contract that ensures affordable healthcare and a fair workload.
