It can ruin a trip before it even starts.So do you have an idea how to make airport security better? Make the lines faster? If you do, it could earn you part of $15,000.

PHOENIX -

Disgruntled hotel workers are taking to the streets Thursday morning in protest of what they say are poor working conditions.

Dozens of hotel waiters, maids, and their supporters are protesting at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix following the release of a video showing the working conditions at the hotel. 

The video was released by Cuentame, an online Latino advocacy group that works to expose the mistreatment of immigrant workers.

FOX 10's Kristin Anderson caught up with protestors to learn more about their complaints.


General Manager Thomas Delaney with The Hyatt Regency Phoenix released this statement:

"The satisfaction and wellbeing of our associates at Hyatt Regency Phoenix is our top priority, because they are the ones who serve our guests each day. We constantly strive to create a great workplace environment by providing comprehensive health and wellness programs, retirement contributions, and other perks such as free and discounted stays at Hyatt hotels around the world. We are proud to be recognized globally by Gallup with its 2013 Great Workplace Award. Additionally, we are honored to be recognized here in Arizona by CareerBuilder as a 2013 Top Company to Work For, and by AzBusiness Magazine and BestCompaniesAZ as one of Arizona's Most Admired Companies 2013.
 
We believe today's demonstration and the video that's being released are simply tactics in a union organizing campaign targeting the hotel and its owners. Because the satisfaction and wellbeing of our associates are so important to us, we welcome any of our associates who are concerned about their workplace experience at Hyatt Regency Phoenix to meet with us at any time.
 
Incidentally, after reviewing your video clip on TV we did not see any of our associates participating in the protest this morning. In addition, the gentlemen interviewed in your news clip, David Ceja, is not an associate of the hotel or affiliated with our organization."
