I know for a fact cws tumeto arc allowed to eoml inll ll he served after 9 o'clock, keeping the asistanto back. These poor girls are not allowed to sit down from the time they come in the morning till they leave at tight. I call it nothing more nor looess than a living tomb. Surely 0ome of you who read this will have a spark of humane kindness, and try and do oomethitg for these poor girls.
