The second-largest hotel in Boston is laying off about half its staff after reopening in August.
Boston Marriott Copley Place laid off more than 230 workers and about 30 managers, according to the Boston Globe. Some of the employees that were terminated have been at the hotel for more than three decades, the newspaper reported.
“I am left with nothing — no job and barely enough money to survive,” Patricia Tchoumi, told the Globe. “They told us we were all a family. That is not the way we were treated.”
