A woman holds a poster stating that 127,865 people had signed the petition to John Lewis calling for cleaners
to be paid the London Living Wage. They had been promised this after taking action two years ago, but
the promise had not been kept. John Lewis are not prepared to put pressure on their contractor to pay a decent wage
