"Waging A Living In London" set to be screened

Earlier this year there was a successful campaign by cleaners working at the Barbican Centre in securing how much they were paid according to the London Living Wage.
The campaign which they fought and won represented a substantial pay rise which at the time was from around £6 per hour to £8.80.
The London Living Wage has now risen again to £9.15 due o the cost of living in the capital rising.
The co-director Ben Mann says how the film focuses on the ‘invisible’ people of London, the cleaners and security guards that ‘keep London moving’ but are ignored when it comes to fair pay.

The couple behind the original protests, Albeiro and Monica Ortiz, are the subject of TV documentary 'Waging A Living In London', which is being shown on London Live tonight at 7.30pm.
