“DoubleTree, Double Standard”

“Over the summer of 2013, Harvard student Gabriel Bayard surveyed dozens of workers at the Harvard-owned DoubleTree Hotel in Allston.  “I was dismayed to hear stories of chronic pain, debilitating injuries, poverty and loved ones without health insurance.” he explained.  “Ninety-six percent of surveyed workers said that their jobs had gotten worse in the past six years; 84% said they could not imagine working there for the next ten years. I was shocked. This was not the Harvard that I knew.” 

Bayard’s findings are compiled in the recently published report “DoubleTree, Double Standard: Comparing Harvard University’s Workplace Standards On and Off Campus.”  Read his results here
