A Fast Food Rights meeting in central Glasgow last Saturday reflected the energy of the workers’ movement in the US. 

It brought the experiences of young, low paid, zero-hours contract workers in Britain together with others from around the globe. 

In Britain the campaign is led by the bakers’ union, Bfawu. Campaigners will take national action on Wednesday 15 April in conjunction with massive strikes in the US. 

The campaign here calls for £10 an hour minimum wage now and no more zero-hours contracts. 

The campaign will be building extensively in coming weeks to prepare for the mass action.
