I've loved the view of you across the river from where I work. You're lovely. But not lovable.
Dear Hyatt Regency Cambridge,
In the past, my University, Boston University, has used the Hyatt Hotel for the year-end party for the psychology dept, for several years in a row. I'm hoping BU will join Governor Patrick in boycotting the Hyatt over its firing of housekeepers when they protested working conditions.
I have written Boston University to ask them to join the boycott.

Their replacements are being paid minimum wage. I guess they thought these deserved more than that.
What's the solution? Pay more for hotel rooms so that workers can earn a living wage? Or: what if hotels didn't have to make a profit? Imagine.
