Taking on McDonalds

Fresh from the success of their recent victory over KFC, Pizza Hut and Starbucks, Unite are now taking on the biggie: McDonalds. As before, they are pushing for a $12 an hour minimum wage, secure hours and an end to youth rates - exactly what they demanded from the other fast food chains. And they are willing to strike and protest to get it.

Things kick off tomorrow, with the declaration of "McFight Night" at the Point Chevalier McDonalds in Auckland. If you'd like to show your support, then turn up between 5 and 7 pm.


I find it unusual they did not take Maccas on first as it is generally used as a umbrella target for fast food outlet.
