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.

London in the 21st Century is home to the global super rich, but it continues to keep hospitality workers on poverty pay - there must be no place for it in a city as wealthy as London. 

Unite is now calling for all hospitality workers to be paid the London Living Wage of £8.80 per hour and treated with decency, dignity and respect in the workplace. The workforce deserves nothing less - £8.80 per hour and no gimmicks like topping up with tips!.
