Working fast food means being understaffed and over worked, providing quality service without the resources that you need to get the job done. Low wage workers face inconsistent and last minute scheduling that prevents us from taking second jobs and coordinating other important aspects of our lives because we never know when we might have to work. On top of all this, workers in fast food are treated with constant disrespect from our managers and bosses whether we are being patronized on the floor, talked to like a child, or paid low wages.
This is about a raise, proper staffing, reliable scheduling, and the respect we deserve.
Fast food and low wage workers are coming together to say that it is time to stop feeling powerless, stop living paycheck to paycheck and stop being disrespected by our employers. When workers come together with a unified voice, we can win real changes in our workplaces. Raising wages benefits the workers, their families and the entire economy.
No worker should live in poverty. Fast food workers matter: we work hard, we want respect, we need a raise!
The time is now.
We have bills to pay, we can’t wait for elected officials to decide that we matter. Rent is rising, food costs are up, education expenses are higher than ever – we need a raise now! We are organizing in our workplace to demand a well-deserved raise and the respect that goes along with standing up for ourselves!
This campaign is open to anyone and everyone who needs a raise. Let us know you’re out there, so we can connect and work together.
