United Kingdom -McDonalds largest zero-hours employer -September 03, 2015

McDonald’s has admitted 90% of its employees in the UK are on zero-hours contracts. The admission indicates the fast-food chain (92,000 workers) is potentially the largest zero-hours employer in the private sector, with 82,800 contracted staff not guaranteed work or a stable income. The controversial practice requires employees to be available for work when it is required but, as they are contracted for zero hours a week, employers are under no obligation to use them or pay them a set wage.
