A lack of respect and poor treatment. Totally Ignored as if
invisible. Subjected to derogatory sexual comments. Sworn at. Treated
with contempt. Expected to clean up vomit and spilt wine stains.
According to Sue Gray.
All I know is that I have worked in a number of organisations and I
have often still been in the office when most people have gone home
and the cleaning staff are doing their stuff. I was surprised how
often they said that managers never speak to them,” just totally
ignore us as if we are invisible”. And how often they complained about
the state of the staff kitchen, being expected to wash up dirty dishes
and coffee mugs and pick up rubbish from the floor, thrown at the bin
but missed and couldn’t be bothered to pick it up.
