Unionize McDonalds, Burger Kings, KFC, Taco Bell, Piazza Hut, Papa John's, Dominos, Wendy's Say Their Striking Workers In First Ever Fast Food Walk-Out

Hundreds of workers in an organizing campaign, Fast Food Forward, struck New York City's largest fast food chains to call for decent wages to support their families, and the right to form a union without interference. Fast Food jobs have accounted for the bulk of new jobs added since the recession and are some of the lowest paid in the country. In New York City, many workers report earning the state's minimum wage, $7.25, and getting shifts totaling an average of only 24 hours a week forcing them to rely on public assistance programs to get healthcare and provide for their families. Now, workers across the US, like those at Walmart, McDonald's, Macy's, LAX, JFK airports, NYC car washes and other retail and fast food stores are joining together to demand decent pay, despite facing retaliation and suspension for trying to form a union.
