The Mercurynews.com reports:

ANAHEIM, Calif.—Workers at two Disneyland hotels staged a three-hour walkout over what they say are unfair working conditions.

The union for workers at the Disneyland Hotel and the Paradise Pier Hotel said about 200 employees left the job Friday to protest housekeeper workload.

The union says Disney's remodeled hotel rooms are harder to clean, but the resort didn't cut the number of rooms a housekeeper must clean in a day.

Disney spokeswoman Suzi Brown says Disney housekeepers clean 14 rooms per day, one of the lowest quotas in the industry. She says other resort employees cleaned the rooms and there were no disruptions for guests. [read more]

At You've Got MAIDS we hire our fair share of disgruntled ex-hotel cleaners. On average they are used to cleaning 18 to 21 rooms a day, far more than the reported 14 at Disney. Imagine how boring it would be cleaning 21 identical rooms 5 days a week. Many of these hotel maids have told me how much they enjoy the variety of homes they get to clean with our cleaning service.
