At least Burger King pays their tax

The Herald reports:

More than 40 protesters held an hour-long working conditions “teach-in” outside the outlet at Aotea Square in Auckland yesterday.

After the speeches, two protesters tried to enter the store but found the door blocked by security guards.

The union national director, Mike Treen, said the protest was to speak up for the company’s workers about a culture of exploitation over pay and individuals being intimidated not to join the union.

I’d say an exploitative employer is one who deducts PAYE from its employees pay packets, and instead of paying the PAYE to the IRD as legally obliged – they instead spend it on political campaigning.
