WHY:     This week, thousands of workers in a dozen cities across North America are holding public demonstrations in solidarity with the “Hyatt 100” housekeepers in Boston. Hyatt fired 100 housekeepers from its three Boston-area hotels after asking workers to train their replacements from an outsourcing agency.  The incident has ignited a national controversy for the newly public Hyatt Hotels—based in Chicago—which launched an initial public offering of its stock on November 5, 2009.
