On 14 April, a global day of action (#FastFoodGlobal) will take place where fast food and low waged workers across the world will protest for higher pay, union rights and respect and dignity at work.
The day of action is in solidarity with US fast food workers, who will be striking on that day in every state, in over 300 cities across the US.
Their incredible strike movement for $15 (approx. £10) an hour and union rights has gone from strength to strength since it emerged in 2012.
It has been a beacon for low waged workers everywhere, showing that it’s possible to organise and fight for an end to low pay, bullying bosses and insecure hoursto fight for a better life.

These companies, like McDonald’s, make billions in profit. Their CEOs are on mega-salaries. Yet the workers who make the profits are living in poverty. Here in Britain, fast food workers are organising and joining the BFAWU bakers’ union. Join the day of action!
