WASHINGTON (September 28, 2020) – With Congress remaining gridlocked and failing to pass another round of COVID-19 recovery legislation, the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) is hosting a virtual press conference along with hotel industry leaders from California, Florida and Illinois where they will release a state-by-state breakdown revealing the devastating effects of COVID-19 on the hotel industry and the millions of jobs it supports.

Prior to the pandemic, hotels proudly supported 1 in 25 American jobs—more than 8.3 million in total. A recentAHLA member survey, conducted September 14-16, 2020, found that if Congress fails to pass another COVID stimulus bill, 74 percent of hotels would be forced to lay off additional employees, and two-thirds of hotels (67%) would not make it another six months. Some of the hardest-hit states include California, Florida, Texas, and New York.
