Earning minimum wage and facing racism, sexism and abuse

12:32 pm on 14 September 2018

In the fifth series of Minimum, a short documentary series about women working for minimum wage, an international student talks about the racism, sexism and abuse she faces in her hospitality job.

The anonymous worker says she has to try to survive on here earnings from working 20 hours a week on minimum wage, as her student visa doesn't allow her to work more. She feels there is no other option as she can't go home as she is gay, a dangerous thing to be in her country of birth.
