This Tuesday, November 10th, fast-food workers across the United States are once again taking direct strike action against the multi-billion dollar industry in which they work. They are pushing for $15 an hour and trade union rights.
"It's an absolute outrage that such action be necessary in order to address fair pay and fair play in one of the world's richest economies" states the UK BFAWU (Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union) "In order to show solidarity with these brave workers, the BFAWU's Fast-Food Rights/Hungry For Justice Campaign will be holding a demonstration at the Salford branch of McDonalds."
This action, in support of American fast food workers, follows up similar action back in April at the McDonald's Salford HQ which drew attention to the company's shocking policies on pay, zero hours contracts and paying tax in this country and around the world (see previous Salford Star article – click here).
