Meanwhile Ronald McDonald gets a makeover and a twitter account

by Granate Sosnoff on 27th April, 2014



While Ronald McDonald was getting a makeover, put out this report showing the fast food industry leading the nation in income inequality. Fast food CEOs make about 1,000 times ($26.7 million a year) more than their average workers. This report comes on the heels of numerous “wage theft” cases around the country where individuals were forced to work overtime, through their breaks, or otherwise off-the-clock for no pay. A recent survey showed that close to 90% of fast food workers experience some form of wage theft. Cases have been settled in New York with McDonald’s and Domino’s and there are four cases pending against McDonald’s in the East Bay.

Fast food workers are organizing for fair wages, $15 an hour, and a union.
