Poverty pay is a disgrace - Hotel workers deserve a London Living Wage of £8.80 p/h

London hotels are among the most expensive in the world yet not one of them pays the living wage of £8.80 per hour, the price of a couple of coffees in the capital city. 

Room attendants are paid by the number of rooms they clean instead of by the hour. Waiting staff are heavily reliant on customer tips to top up low wages. 

Bar staff are often on zero hour contracts, not knowing what they earn from week to week.
