France -Hotel maids organise ‘fashion week for the poor’ -October 03, 2015

As Paris switched into fashion high-gear a group of chambermaids working for the luxury Park Hyatt hotel staged a ‘fashion week for the poor’ to celebrate victory in a labour dispute. Dressed up with splashes of colour and sequins about 60 chambermaids and various other workers from Park Hyatt marched to another hotel, the W Paris Opera, where workers were still striking for better working conditions. The Hyatt workers obtained after a strike double pay for public holidays worked, and increased meal and travel allowances.
