It was a loud lunch for those seeking some fast food at Supermac's yesterday during a protest over minimum wages. There was only a handful of diners in the restaurant on O'Connell Street in Dublin during a noisy march outside its doors.

Workers from the fast food industry, SIPTU and the Migrant Rights Centre joined forces to protest at the restaurant's participation in an "attack" on low wages. Supermac's is part of a legal challenge to the Joint Labour Committee system that sets wages for the industry. The current wage rate for the sector is less than one euro above the €8.65 national minimum wage.
