AAHOA in the News
Yesterday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and International Franchise Association issued a comprehensive report on the joint-employer issue titled "Main Street in Jeopardy: The Expanding Joint Employer Threat to Small Businesses." This detailed report reveals the numerous, harmful effects that joint-employer expansion will have on American small businesses.
A Texas court heard arguments Monday from the Chamber of Commerce on why it should enjoin enforcement of the Labor Department's new "persuader rule" during the pendency of its lawsuit against the agency. The persuader rule requires that companies disclose the hiring of union-busting firms even when those firms don't come into contact with workers. The court will likely rule on the injunction bid in the coming weeks. 
While the campaign has reduced the list to approximately 12 potential choices, advisers to the presumptive Democratic nominee have begun checking into the positions, backgrounds and financial dealings of at least three potential vice presidential candidates.

Jeffrey Sparshott, The Wall Street Journal
About two-thirds of U.S. cities have fully rebounded from the recession and are now at peak employment levels, highlighting the steady job gains and tightening labor market across wide swathes of the nation. That’s pushing wages higher in many metro areas, generating more disposable income for households and supporting spending on housing and other goods and services, according to a report for the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
Lizz Chambers, Hotel Business Review
So much of what we do as hotel managers boils down to how we treat our team members. Not only must we be good role models, but we must also be observant and correct bad behavior before it turns into a habit. 
Today's Hotelier: In Case You Missed It
Tema Frank, Today’s Hotelier
We all want loyal customers. They save us money on advertising costs and agency fees because they are likely to come back to us directly to rebook. They are more likely to tell others about us and send us referral business. They make our staff feel good, because there can be a relationship that develops and regular customers are more likely to leave larger tips. So how do you get that kind of loyalty? The key is delivering consistently excellent, and sometimes surprising, customer experiences. Let’s break that down.
Richard Takach, Jr., Today’s Hotelier 
The ability to form successful partnerships, similar to how we build an internal team of executives and staff, is an essential function and distinguishing skill of all hotel executives. Some relationships are, by their nature, short-lived. Others can last a lifetime. The business relationships and partnerships that we create in our organizations, in many ways, define who we are, how we deliver to our customers and to the promise behind our brand. They’re a direct indicator of our overall success and profitability.
