TEACH-IN SUN 12 NOON: “It’s Bitter with the King” – Defend workers rights at BK!

15 Aug

Join the teach-in at: Burger King Civic, Aotea Square, Sunday August 19 @ 12 noon.


Burger King workers are the lowest paid fast food workers in New Zealand.

Most are on minimum wage, even some who have worked there for 15 years.

Managers on salary are forced to work extra hours, and sometimes work for less than minimum wage per hour.

Many workers in Burger King are migrant workers, mostly from the Indian subcontinent.

They face a bonded labour system – terrified of speaking out about mistreatment in case the company revokes their visa sponsorship.

All this must end.

BK workers and others who have experienced abuse of their rights will give first hand accounts of their treatment.

We aim to repeat these teach-in’s at BK stores around the country over the coming weeks.

“When workers rights are under attack, Stand up Fight Back”
