I am giving my support to the striking workers in Wetherspoons, TGI Fridays and McDonald’s – John McDonnell

John McDonnell, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, speaking ahead of strike actions organised by the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union today, said:

“I am giving my support to the striking workers in Wetherspoons, TGI Fridays and McDonald’s today. These are workers that have been ignored by their employers and are simply asking for a wage they can live on and the same basic rights at work we should all be entitled to.

“Under a Labour government, we will guarantee that all workers will have their rights at work protected from day one, earn a living wage of £10 per hour and that those on strike would be entitled to a share in the ownership of the companies they work for.”
