` World’s Fast Food Strike And Protest Over Pay And Working Conditions On May 15 ‘


AceFoodNews – WORLDWIDE – From New York City to Nigeria and New Zealand, fast food workers will strike and protest on Thursday to demand higher pay and better working conditions — in a global day of action with unprecedented reach for the industry.

Fast Food Workers Strike

Workers and labour organizers across the globe have united in a campaign that aims to advance workers’ specific demands in each country, while also showing solidarity with the US  based push for a $15 hourly wage and workers’ right to be unionise without fearing retaliation.

‘What kind of country are we about to have when these are all the jobs that are available to our kids?’

“This is the biggest fast food strike in America’s history, in the world’s history,” Kendall Fells, the organizing director at Fast Food Forward, a New York group behind the campaign, told VICE News.

“Fast food is not only the fastest growing industry in the country, it’s also the lowest paying industry in the country, and it has the broadest gap between what the workers and the CEOs make.

  2. White flour, commonly used to bake biscuits, is almost instantly metabolized into sugar.  Biscuits will quickly spike your blood-sugar level.
  3. Mustard is a common condiment to use on biscuits in the south, especially to accompany ham.
  4. Most biscuit recipes call for a healthy dose of butter in the baking process.  Despite this, many people butter their biscuits after they are served as well.
  5. The main difference between biscuits and rolls is the leavening agent.  Biscuits use baking soda.  Rolls use yeast.
