Luxury hotels in Paris are being hit by a wave of strike over low wages. Chamber maids, valets, bartenders, cooks and other employees are protesting for better wages, arguing that hotels where rooms can cost more per night than their annual salaries, can afford to give them a better deal. Successes at two Parisian Hyatt hotels, where workers negotiated a better pay deal after days of full blown strike, have reinvigorated the protests at other luxury hotels.
