WORLD NEWS Loo Of The Year Expands Into Ireland


For 28 years the Loo of the Year Awards (LOYA) have been the UK standard for ‘away from home’ toilets throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The unannounced inspections by trained and experienced LOYA inspectors are valued by cleaning and FM companies as a valuable and independent assessment of the standard of their service and recognition of their achievement.


For the 2015 awards, for the first time entries are now invited from any washroom provider or contractor


anywhere in the Republic of Ireland. There are 60 entry categories and a range of national awards for Ireland as well as eligibility for overall trophies as well.


Awards and Trophies will be presented at the prestigious Awards Event on Friday 4h December at the St Johns Hotel in Solihull with superb hospitality opportunities.

Cleaning Homes Is A Dirty Business


A new cleaning service has been set up in Canada, where lingerie-wearing dancers will clean your home.


Dirty Business was set up in the city of Saskatoon towards the end of last year by exotic dancer Emily Kempin, and it has already proven to be a popular service, particularly with men in their 20s and 30s, despite rates of $200 per hour.


And Kempin revealed that there’s also a waiting list of people who want to work for her. Speaking to Huffington


Post Canada, she said: “It’s fun and it’s a great way to raise the price a little bit and make some money, and to work with some amazing females.”


Clients can take pictures of the cleaners while they work, but Kempin said that touching is strictly prohibited, with bodyguards accompanying them on the job to ensure they feel safe.


She said: “If they touch us, say anything inappropriate or anything that offends us, we will leave.”


However, she added that so far, nothing has made her cleaners feel uncomfortable while they’ve been at work – although there have been some who think the business is a front for an escort service.


But Kempin insists that Dirty Business instead offers her employees – who are or have been exotic dancers themselves – the chance to do some work that is “a little bit out of the limelight of dancing.”


Cleaners In India Denied Wages For Seven Months


More than 120 cleaners in Kochi, India are living in abject poverty after being denied their wages for seven months.


The cleaners were recruited on a daily wage basis by the local authorities to ensure healthy living conditions for the people of Kochi, carrying out a wide range of cleaning operations, including mosquito eradication, clearing of drains and the collection and removal of rubbish dumped on the roadsides.

These workers were offered 377 Rupees, just over £4, for a day’s work, but haven’t received any pay since June. And a former worker in the Edappally Health Circle of the corporation said that the local body failed to pay them their wages regularly as well. She said: “We have never been paid the wages regularly. They would give us salary in a piecemeal manner. Sometimes salary would be paid once in three or four months.”


MP Maheshkumar, a councillor representing the Kunnumpuram has blasted the local body, saying that the civic representatives “should hang their heads in shame”, as none of them could ensure regular payment of salary to workers engaged in supposedly “menial” jobs.


Mr Mahesh has raised the issue in the council, and also criticised the administrators for “awaiting government clearance to pay the workers their salary.”
