Workers at McDonalds, Wetherspoons, TGI Fridays, Uber Eats and Deliveroo joined forces and staged coordinated strikes over pay. The planned strikes dubbed McStrike have been taking place in various cities across the UK. The series of walkouts is to highlight the issue over pay and zero hours contracts. Labour are 100% behind the strike with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell showing his support and addressing the crowd. Labour stands firmly with those striking today for a living wage. No one should be on low paid insecure work and barely being able to survive on a day to day basis. McDonell has said the next Labour Government will protect workers rights.
