Headline: McDonald’s New Zealand union activist sacked for telling Parliament about missing meal breaks!

Mcdosackedworker.jpgMcDonald’s New Zealand has sacked union delegate Sean Bailey for helping to expose the company’s repeated failures to provide meal breaks for many staff working more than a four-hour shift as required by law, and for giving critical testimony on this issue to a parliamentary committee.
