This had been an on-going problem for years but I thought have decreased by now...Sad that the lowest paid have to put up with this.
I am an Indian, i heard in five star hotels and restaurants female staff is informed during employment such incidence may occur and they have to live with it ,else terminated.
People need job so exploitation is a part of culture in hospitality industry.
