Mcdonald's UK staff join global day of protests

Mcdonald's workers in the UK have gone on strike as part of a global day of protests over pay.

Staff at six south London stores are walking out on Tuesday, while protests will be held across the UK, including outside downing street.

 They are demanding an end to "poverty pay" rates and better terms and conditions.

McDonald's said that the strikers represented a "tiny proportion" of its UK workforce.

 It comes as staff in countries such as the US, France, Brazil and Chile also stage protests and strikes over wages.

 In the UK, McDonald's workers are calling for a rise in pay to £15 an hour - over a third more than what they currently earn.
