McDonald's workers strike over sexual harassment policy

Staff at McDonald's restaurants in 10 US cities will walk out on Tuesday over claims the fast food giant is not doing enough to prevent sexual harassment.
The strike comes after 25 women filed complaints against the chain, alleging it failed to enforce company rules against abuse.
The women said they were ignored after reporting incidents including groping, indecent exposure and lewd comments.
McDonald's said there was "no place for harassment" at its restaurants.
Organisers said the strike would target multiple restaurants in cities including Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami.
It is thought several hundred staff will walk out.
