Shower for 75: Olympic cleaners live dirty lives in campsite7/16/2012
While athletes competing in the London Olympics can enjoy state-of-the-art luxurious living conditions in the Olympic village, spare a thought for some of the labor force. According to a British newspaper investigation, cleaners drafted in to work during the games are staying in an overcrowded and dingy campsite which has been left flooded by the heavy rains affecting London this summer. Workers will reportedly sleep in dormitories for 10 people and share bathrooms for 25 people, with an astounding 75 to each shower. One worker said the conditions reminded her of a ‘prison camp.’ Craig Lovett, of Spotless International Services which runs the camp, responded: “This is not a prison. Nobody is forced to stay there.” [Source]
