It’s time for McDonald’s to give its workers a new deal. I’ve worked at McDonald’s for six years, and today I’m on strike for the fourth time.
London is one of the most expensive cities in world to live in, yet McDonald’s pays barely more than the minimum wage. I get £8.80 an hour, and by the time I’ve paid rent and bills, I don’t have enough to live on. I had to work full time while I was studying at university just to be able to support myself.
Wonder what that degree was in, eh?
The truly weird thing here being that McDonald’s is well known for being a truly great place to try to work yourself up. Show any aptitude at all and they’ll have you on management track like a ferret up a Northern trouser leg.
Really would be fun to know what that degree was in…..
