Dodgy bosses at Macca's

We're playing a bit more music this week as we adjust to a lack of Feargal in the studio. In this episode we have a short interview with McDonald's worker, Retail and Fast Food Workers Union member and newest addition to the Workers Power 4ZZZ team, Jason Harradine. We talk about RAFFWU winning penalty rates for Maccas workers, and the response from the dodgy bosses in trying to cut workers hours. If you are a McDonald's worker, you do not have to sign a new agreement. If your boss is telling you that you do, get them to put it in writing, and record the interaction yourself. For more information you can watch this 11 minute video.
