Fast Food Rights campaign protests: 29th March

Protests are taking place across the country tomorrow as part of the 'fast food rights' campaign.

Protesters involved in the 'Fast Food Rights' coalition are taking part in over 28 protests across the country as part of a newly launched campaign. The protesters are demanding a living wage for all workers and an end to the use of zero-hour contracts. Fast Food outlets including McDonalds, Costa and Burger King will be targeted by protesters who will also be signing workers up to the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU), who initiated the Fast Food Rights campaign.

Ian Pattison, spokesperson for Youth Fight for Jobs said:

"This day of action is part of building a campaign against the low-pay, insecurity and exploitation taking place across the fast food industry at the present time. We are fighting for decent jobs - with guaranteed hours, a living wage and trade union rights. These multi-billion pound companies are making sky-high profits by super-exploiting workers - especially young workers. But this campaign is building the fightback".

Protests are taking place in towns and cities all over Britain.
