IL Governor to Sign the Humane Treatment of Hotel Room Attendants Act; Hotel housekeepers will get two, paid 15-minute rest breaks

Thousands of women who clean hotel rooms will benefit from a new law passed by the Illinois General Assembly this spring. The law requires hotels to give two, paid 15-minute rest breaks per day. Room attendants - overwhelmingly female - have been struggling with increased workloads as hotels upgrade their bedding and amenities.

The signing ceremony will feature room attendants representing their co-workers, who come from Chicago and all over the globe - Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa - to provide for their families.

The law was sponsored by State Rep. John Fritchey and State Sen. Ira Silverstein, and supported by Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President Emil Jones.
