U.S. Senate to Begin Voting Sunday: Act Now to Save Hotel Jobs

Dear Friend,

In less than 24 hours the U.S. Senate will begin voting on the CARES Act. The bill seeks to inject more than $1 trillion into the U.S. economy.

AHLA supports the CARES Act but important changes must be made to help hotel employees and protect their jobs.

Please contact your Senator and Representative immediately. Ask them for three important changes to the legislation:

  1. Allow furloughed workers instant access to the current Unemployment Insurance system and fund the system to protect reasonable employee compensation.
  2. Offer tax credits to employers who maintain health insurance benefits for furloughed employees.
  3. Expand instant access to SBA lending programs so that hoteliers can meet debt obligations and basic expenses to keep their businesses open.

Congress is looking to pass a broad economic rescue package that the Trump administration estimates will be around $1.3 trillion. We need your help to ensure restaurant relief is properly addressed in this package.

Economic forecasts indicate restaurants and the foodservice industry could sustain $225 billion in losses and eliminate 5-7 million jobs over the next three months. By taking action, you will tell your personalized story about how this has negatively impacted you, your employees, and your industry and call on President Trump and Congress for their support of the National Restaurant Association restaurant recovery plan. This plan provides direct and targeted relief designed to benefit restaurant and foodservice businesses of every size in every corner of the country.

Please take a few moments to participate in this vital grassroots mobilization effort. We need Congress to act—and act fast.
