Two sisters who have a combined 30 years experience working as housekeepers at a California Hyatt have been fired. They say they were let go by the Santa Clara Hyatt after complaining about being depicted as swimsuit-clad surfers for Housekeeping Appreciation Week.

The older sister, Lorena Reyes, 50, of San Jose, began at the hotel before Hyatt even began running it. Martha Reyes, 48, of Milpitas, has worked for the hotel for six years. When management accused them on Oct. 14 of "stealing company time" for taking excessive breaks, they were shown the front door, according to Jezebel.The decision was made after the hotel launched an investigation into the matter.
