Stop Below Poverty Wages

When fast food corporations refuse to pay workers a living wage, you and I pick up the tab for the low paid workers medicaid and food stamps.

Petition Statement:
A whopping 52% of fast-food employees' families are forced to rely on public assistance to put food on the table or see a doctor, because you pay them poverty wages. That means every single American is picking up the check for nearly $7 billion in tax dollars a year—while the fast-food industry reaps billions in profits. It's outrageous, and it has to stop. It's time to pay your workers $15 an hour so they can make ends meet and Americans can stop paying for the hidden costs of poverty wages.

Sign the Petition to force fast food corporations to pay workers 15 dollars an hour.(MoveOn)
