Fast Food Industry: We're Not Going to Take it Anymore

To be delivered to McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Domino's and Papa John's:

Petition Statement

We have a huge economic problem in this country. It's you and the rest of the fast food industry.

Together, your restaurants employ millions of people. Millions of people, mostly adults, who can't afford rent if they want to eat. Who can't afford health care if they want to pay their bus fare. Millions of people, and more than 25% of them are parents who can't afford school supplies if they have to buy school shoes.

Last year your combined profits were $7.35 billion. Yet you still paid most of your workers less than $11,200 a year – poverty wages. It’s shameful. And outrageous.

We're speaking out together because it has to change. We’re rising up as Americans to say it's no longer a matter of WHETHER you will raise wages; it's a matter of WHEN. Your companies can do this right now – you have the power to raise wages for your workers today.
There are currently 17,388 signatures. NEW goal - We need 20,000 signatures!

Petition Background

We're mad as hell. And we're not going to take it anymore.

Today, right at this very moment, thousands of workers in cities across the country – from Los Angeles, to Peoria, Hartford, Tampa and many more – are on a National Strike against low pay. It's incredible that they joined us. And it's working.

By now, everyone knows that fast food employees like me can't make ends meet on $7.25 an hour or barely more. They know how incredibly profitable, and out of touch, the corporations we work for are. They know – you know – that something has to change. Starting now.

Help us send the fast food chains we work for a message that they can't ignore. Add your name to our open letter to the top eight fast food chains, right now.


Nancy Salgado, Chicago McDonald's Striker
