Abstract:

One of the great pleasures of staying in a hotel is spending time in a spotless, neat, and organised space that you don't have to clean. That doesn't, however, mean the work disappears - when we're not looking, someone else is doing it. In this book, David Brody introduces us to those people - the housekeepers whose labour keeps the rooms clean and the guests happy. Through unprecedented access to staff at several hotels, Brody shows us just how much work goes on behind the scenes, and how much management goes out of its way to make sure that labour stays hidden.
