    Men and women who work in the hospitality industry - i.e. hotels and related travel and tourism oriented jobs.

    The hospitality industry is a broad category of fields within the service industries that includes lodging, event planning, theme parks, transportation, cruise line, and additional fields within the tourism industry.

    It sounds like in this case it's specifically a reference to hotel workers.
