Viva Las Kellys.. Direct Action Mutual Aid by Marginal Women Workers

The Kellys are a Spanish based net of groups defending shockingly exploited workers, mainly women hotel cleaners in precarious jobs. Women who are ignored by the bought-out Unions who are tied up in laws and covert bribes. Workers are treated like dirt, while clients spend up to 500 euros a night for a 5 star hotel room..

The Kellys is an autonomous Association and that believes in self-organization, it is made up of hotel cleaners, floor waitresses and their friends and relatives and it fights from common objectives.

The Kellys aims to give visibility to the problems of the floor maids, as well as contributing to the improvement of their quality of life. We operate in territorial work groups, each working group internally manages its spokeswomen

According to The Middle East Eye (MEE) Khan is only one of some 50,000 Saudi Oger employees who have not been paid since last summer. The kingdom’s largest private company reportedly owes employees US $800 million in back pay.

Living in a work camp where rent is US $133 per month, Khan has to rely on friends for food and accommodation costs. Most crucially, like many migrant workers in the country, Khan’s family is reliant on his earnings in the kingdom.57427fd544f64
