    Making Travel More Ethical - ERICA BARNETT, WorldChanging
    Hotel Workers Rising's guide is simple but incredibly useful: You tell the web site where you're planning to stay, and it produces a list of hotels--sorted by location or hotel company--that employ union members. The site also provides a list of particularly "bad" hotels to avoid on its boycott page, and a ton of resources about labor disputes at various hotel chains, stories from real hotel workers, and a series of fact sheets detailing the conditions facing hotel workers in the United States.
