London Olympic Organizers Turn into Slumlords Print E-mail

Organizers of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London have become slumlords as they force foreign-born cleaners to live in portable storage rooms. Ten people must live in each carton.

According to the Daily Mail of London, “cleaners at the Olympic Park are being housed ten to a room at a huge temporary compound. The campsite in East London, hidden from public view, has 25 people sharing each toilet and 75 to each shower.”

Exploited cleaners must sleep in portable cabins, many of which have been leaking in the rain.

As reported by the Mail, “and the bad weather has left the site with stagnant water, forcing them to use abandoned crates as makeshift ‘stepping stones’ to move around the site. Hundreds have come from abroad to work at the Olympics despite promises that the jobs would go to Londoners.”

Foreigners desperate for jobs are fleeing from London to escape from ‘filthy’ toilets and showers.
