Adelaide protest organised by socialist youth group Resistance - part of a day of protest around Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand. 

Hungry Jacks (Burger King in NZ) has been on a vicious anti-union worker rampage in NZ, paying pathetic wages then threatening young workers who dare to join their union and push for better pay and conditions. 

In Australia, HJs are part of a cartel of the biggest and most profitable food corporations who are trying to take away weekend penalty rates.

HJs makes millions in profit - yet pays young workers in Australia as little as $8.21 an hour, and now wants to take away their penalty rates for working weekends and holidays!

A liveable wage now! Defend the right to be in a union! Defend penalty rates!
