Do airlines pay their cabin crew a fair wage?

Cabin crew have to endure both long and short haul flights so why do they only get a basic salary of £10,000?

True they are experiencing the delightful element of travel but they only have a stop over of one or perhaps in some cases two nights. In order to get to these fabulous destinations they have to first serve people tea and coffee and deal with difficult passengers.

Looking after 50-300 people isn't easy so why do they only earn a very small salary? At the end of the day it is just another type of job, these people still need somewhere to live and put food on the table for families.

How on earth can cabin crew live on that salary!!! Is it really only because the employers believe they are travelling all round the world that they feel justified in paying such low wages?

Businessmen travel the world also yet I don't think they would for that kind of money!!
