McDonald's: Support a raise in the minimum wage

To be delivered to Donald Thompson, President and CEO of McDonald's

Petition Statement

McDonald's: Support a raise in the minimum wage so your employees can live on their wages.
There are currently 951 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

McDonald's recently launched a financial planning site for their workers and came to the conclusion that it is essentially imposible to survive on a single minimum wage job. The site assumes employees will work an additional job just to make ends meet, even for the very bare-bones budget they put together. This is as embarrassing as it is disturbing. If you work full time, you should be able to make ends meet. Call on McDonald's to support a raise in the minimum wage so their workers don't have to work a second job to survive.
