In America, people who work hard should be able
to afford basic necessities like groceries, rent,
childcare and transportation.
While fast food corporations reap the benefits
of record profits, workers are barely getting by—
many are forced to be on public assistance despite
having a job.
Raising pay for fast food workers will
benefit workers and strengthen the overall economy.
Fast Food Forward is a movement of NYC fast food workers to raise wages and gain rights at work. It is part of the national movement of low-wage workers fighting for a better future. When we make enough to live - instead of barely getting by - our community and economy benefit.
Fast Food Forward joins the momentum of the Black Friday strikes and other low-wage worker struggles to build community engagement, hold corporations and their CEOs accountable, and to raise wages so that all Americans can prosper.
