    Staff at two McDonald's restaurants in the UK are staging the first strike to hit the company in the country.

    They are unhappy with poor pay, zero-hour contracts and a lack of union rights. In addition to the strike, they are also holding a protest outside the Houses of Parliament in the capital, London, alongside union workers and politicians.
