Protest at McDonald's Marble Arch 10am
War on Want will join the Global Day of Action alongside the Bakers’ Food & Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) and Fast Food Rights campaigners. There will be protests at McDonald’s in cities and towns across Britain in solidarity with fast food workers.
While exploiting workers with zero hours contracts, poverty pay and substandard working conditions, McDonald’s has been allowed to divert revenue for years costing European countries over €1 billion in lost taxes.
