I support the fast food workers’ strike

Fast-food workers across the U.S. are striking today for better wages.

The stereotype of the fast-food worker is a teenager making some spending money over the summer; someone who can afford to be paid poorly and who will use the experience to move to a higher paying job soon. That’s not reality: 70% percent of fast food workers are over 20, and 40% are over 25. More than 25% are parents. In our economy, service jobs are how people make a living now. They need to pay living wages.
