Watch this, especially the last few minutes when the Hyatt workers talk about the people they served at the hotel.
Many workers at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix immigrated to America for the chance of a better life. However, the workers’ standards of living stand in stark contrast to those of the principals at PCCP, the California-based real estate investment firm that owns the hotel. The predominately Latina housekeepers endure grueling cleaning quotas of 30 rooms a day.
Workers that have dedicated 20 to 30 years of their life to Hyatt make less than $25,000 a year and have little prospect of a secure retirement. As a result, many workers rely on state welfare programs.
