As McDonald’s workers take a stand against the world’s second largest private employer, anything you can do to show your solidarity will help boost their confidence.

Lewis Baker, a McDonald’s worker in Crayford, said:

“Every message of support builds our confidence as we stand up to this bullying company and demand a fair wage and respect on the job. When we stand on the picket line we are standing up for everyone. When we win everyone wins! Get your McStrike on and show your McSolidarity!”
