Fast Food Workers in Miami held a press conference at a local McDonalds to discuss the importance of raising the minimum wage and join the national “Fighting for $15” movement.
Workers are uniting to raise their wages, lift their families out of poverty, and the right to organize a union without retaliation.
For the first time in Miami workers are coming out from the shadows and ready to talk. They need your support to make this happen.
We need to get our economy moving again, and fast-food workers are leading the way. They’ve gone on strike, fueling a national debate on income inequality and creating momentum to raise wages.
The fast food industry is booming. McDonalds and Burger King are part of a $200 billion industry. McDonald’s made a $5.5 billion profit in 2012 alone. These companies should pay their hard-working employees enough to cover the necessities and support their families, and not force taxpayers to shoulder the burden.
