Over 80 McDonald’s workers and supporters held a loud protest outside Queen St Auckland McDonald’s. Workers from stores around Auckland went on strike and joined the picket. They then marched to the Hyatt Hotel where McDonald’s managers were meeting.

The protests were loud and strong. The workers are angry about minimum wage pay rates and insecure hours.

    They took the job at min wage if they want a raise you go to the boss and plead your case, BUT not if your a communist. You take people out of their jobs. If I owned one of those restaurants I would FIRE everyone that walked out as there are plenty of people that would love to work.

    These people should be happy they have a job in this obama economy it could be that there will be no jobs soon with what obama (their so called friend) has coming down between the taxes for the Rich (they will slow down and fire workers) and the health care (the rich who HIRE PEOPLE) will move everyone to part time as this so called free health care is NOT free and will cost owners thousands that would have been to expand and hire people. BUT NO MORE so reap what you sow you little commies.

    I knew John Key is an Americanophile (if that’s a word) but I didn’t realise we are another state of the US already. That TPP is very efficient
