Tell us about the work you do.
I work for SPS, Select Service Partner, the catering multinational that runs franchises in thousands of stations from here to Sydney. In Britain, it runs the Burger Kings, Upper Crusts, the bars and pubs at every station and airport.
It’s a minimum wage job, using mostly migrant labour. A lot of workers are here on student visas, with a limit of 20 hours on how long they can work, which means having more than one job under the counter. I know two Afghan workers who do 12 to 14 hour shifts
