Fast Food Workers

Isabella Paytas

When it began

This protest began in November of 2012.

Who is involved

Fast food workers in over 150 cities and the fast food companies they work for.

Why is it happening

Fast food workers across our nation believe the minimum wage should be raised to $15/hr.

The impact it had

This protest has gotten many people involved and helped people to be heard. It has gotten many people's attention, including some companies to agree to raise their wages, even a little at a time.

Pros and Cons

Pros: Many cities are raising wages. Companies are finally listening to their workers.

Cons: Workers have been attacked and arrested due to protesting.

Right to Protest?

YES. Most workers are forced to use public assistance, whether they want to or not. Greater than 52% rely on public assistance. An average worker makes about $18,880/yr. which is less than the poverty level for a family of two. These workers do a lot of dirty work and makes almost 10x less than the CEOs of the companies. The working environments are not always in good condition and the workers go through a lot just to get paid a small wage. The workers deserve a raise, but in little increments.
