Can you imagine trying to raise a family on $8.94 an hour? Or even just to feed yourself?
That’s the median hourly wage, today, for a fast food worker.
When the CEO earns $8.75 million annually—a la McDonald’s—the meager wage seems even more absurd.
We’re supporting fast food workers with our prayers and our voices and our bodies. Here are the three things that they’re fighting for:
- $15 minimum wage
- Dignity on the job
- The right to form a union
Basically, we don’t think that these workers should be footing the bill for us to get a cheap burger off the value menu.
