 A bill that would require California hotels to use fitted bottom sheets in all hotel rooms is expected to reach the Senate floor by the end of this month. According to union leaders, the use of fitted sheets would greatly reduce the physical stress experienced by housekeepers who have to lift heavy mattresses many times a day while tucking in non-fitted sheets. Hoteliers argue that the law could cost the industry $20 million statewide.
