Women Migrant Workers Cheated Out Of Minimum Wage

Gawd bless the TUC. You can't rely on them to organise workers to fight back, or to say boo to a goose, but they come up with some useful research every now and again.

So the latest from the Department Of Oo You Don't Say is the startling news that female migrant workers are the group most likely to be paid less than the minimum wage. You probably guessed that already, but at least you now have the facts at your fingertips.

Still, at least this will not include women cleaners on London Underground, as RMT cleaners have won the 'London living wage' after a hugely inspiring struggle which I must write up at some point.
