BA Strike: Shocked MPs call cabin crew’s poverty pay “a national scandal”

Around 200 British Airways cabin crew descended on Parliament for a meeting with MPs during their third strike over poverty pay. Shocked MPs called their £12K basic salary and horrendous conditions “a national scandal”, and branded CEO Willie Walsh’s salary of £8.8 million a year “obscene” and “immoral”. The entire shadow cabinet are now backing the crew, with promises to push for a select committee hearing to bring British Airways to account.
