Hotel Workers Take to the Streets

Scott Budman

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.
