Six current and former female employees of the iconic Plaza Hotel are suing the New York City landmark, alleging in court documents filed Tuesday that while working at the hotel, they were subject to "outrageous and incessant sexual harassment and assault by senior management and their male counterparts."
...Lewis said that she was "excited," when she first got the job at the more than a century-old hotel, which was highlighted in movies such as "Eloise at the Plaza" and "Home Alone."
...She said the unwanted advances began happening within days of when she started working at the hotel in November 2016, telling ABC News, "I tried to ignore it at first, hoping that it would stop."
Lewis said the sexual misconduct from her colleagues soon "became a part of the job."
Asked why she would not leave, she said, "I'm a single mother. I have a 10-year-old daughter. I felt like I didn't have much of a choice. I needed the job."
