Raise Up for 15
Fast food workers in the South have been organizing and going on strike at stores throughout NC, SC, VA, GA, and elsewhere to demand $15 an hour and the right to form a union without retaliation. Employers like McDonalds, Burger King, Dominos and Taco Bell are making billions in profits while workers like us, adults with families, don’t get paid enough to cover basic needs like food, rent, health care and transportation.
We are standing up to say ENOUGH. And we need everyone who supports us to join us. It’s time to give every worker a chance to survive and thrive – and strengthen the economy.

McDonald's: Managers Assaulting Workers Won't Be ToleratedTwo nights ago, after standing on my feet for hours during a late shift, I asked my shift manager who was coming in to replace me so I could finally go home and rest. My shift manager berated me and threatened me with violence saying he was going to hit me with the fry basket. I backed away but after the threats continued I firmly told him he needed to stop. Then he slapped me across the face in front of other workers. The next morning my General Manager and District Manager called me into their office, said they had watched the tape of the incident and told me, "He didn't hit you that hard" I am offended, outraged and disappointed that no one in management, even though they had watched the security tape of the assault, was taking it seriously. Letting my shift manager off the hook because he didn't draw blood or knock me out is beyond insulting.3,100 of 4,000 SignaturesCreated by Jasmine Lopez
