McDonald's UK workers to strike for the first time

McDonald’s is witnessing its first UK strike since the franchise opened in 1974.

Protests by unions and the public are fuelled by concerns over low wages and the use of zero-hour contracts. Around 40 staff will strike today, at two restaurants in Cambridge and Crayford, south-east London, after a ballot in favour of industrial action – The Guardian reports.
