McDonald’s: Pay Your Workers A Living Wage
September 16, 2013
From Democracy for America.
The vast majority of McDonald’s employees earn less than $16,000 a year. Nobody can live on that amount, or raise a family. McDonald’s should pay its employees a living wage.
Why is this important?
“McDonald’s took in more than $5.5 billion in profits last year, but millions of its employees are still making wages so low that they’re often forced to choose between paying rent and buying food. If we are going to close the economic opportunity gap it is crucial that wealthy corporations like McDonald’s start paying their employees fairly.”
