Germany - Fast-food giants refuse to pay living wage - May 31, 2017

Since October 2016, fast-food workers have been in a conflict with employers over fair pay and a living wage. In collective bargaining with the food workers union NGG, the companies have offered a wage which is considerably below what the government calculates as the minimum needed to build for a decent retirement. Since the start of 2017, more than 1000 workers and supporters have participated in protest actions and warning strikes at McDonald's, Burger King, Starbucks, Pizza Hut and Autogrill. The employers have shown no serious willingness to negotiate a living wage.
