Michael Capuano Calls For Boycott of Hyatt

Cell Phone Waiting Lot

Open Media Boston reports on yesterday's rally protesing the Hyatt firings, Speakers Call for Boycott of the Hotel Chain: Rep. Michael Capuano is quoted as saying:
"Every single politician from school committee to President should not stay at a Hyatt hotel anywhere in the country. Tourism's important. This is important. There's a lot of people that will be impacted. But I can't tell you how strongly I feel about this. And you do too. I pray to god that Hyatt Corporation comes knocking on my door next week. It'll be a closed door meeting if they do - I don't think they will - but it'd be fun. But I tell you I'm a former mayor. Over in Somerville. And you know, there's a couple of hotels over there. Not a Hyatt, thank god. But I'll tell you, sometimes they have to be inspected by the fire department. Sometimes they have to be inspected by the health department. And that's good because we need safe clean hotels. This hotel better be safe and clean."
Strong words. What do you think?



  1. Kudos to Representative Capuano for making this statement. He made a strong statement in support of the Boston housekeepers, and more politicians should do the same.

    Please take a moment to sign this petition in support of the workers who were deceived, then fired. Hyatt Boycott
