In this edition of #DailyOutrage we discuss Syria, Irish security sector and the strike of fast food workers in America.

Last night, the UK parliament took a vote on whether to intervene in Syria. The MP’s voted ‘no’ and to allow the United Nations to do their job. The votes were 285 against and 272 for – only 13 votes in it.

The Iraq war shadows over Syria.Whether you agree or disagree with the Assad regime bombing an entire country will not resolve the issues which are happening in Syria. Therefore we we must allow the UN to do their job

In #DailyOutrage we also discuss the industrial action which Irish security staff are getting closer and closer to. The security staff are considering strike action after right security officers were left without jobs after a change in contractor. SIPTU argues that under the Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) the new contractor should retain staff. However, the new company is refusing to speak to them. To read more about this click here.

Yesterday, we seen thousands of fast food workers go on strike against wage levels and terms and conditions. Unite union has been organising fast food workers. In the US, fast food workers are taking part in a nationwide strike, the biggest in the industry’s history. They are demanding a living wage of $15 per hour.
