Hospitality workers have experienced a doubling of their workload due to Covid-19, the Voice of London has discovered.

Evelina, 24, who immigrated to the UK in 2018, and has since worked as a waitress says: “From an inside perspective, I’d say that the amount of work that we are getting now has doubled from pre-Covid time.”
