Thursday, December 6, 2012

5:00pm in EST

7th Ave & W 42nd St New York, NY 10036

Mass Rally at Thursday 5PM Times Square!
Direct Actions and Marches to Follow

Last week, 200 workers at Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King, Domino's and Taco Bell went on strike and joined workers at Car Washes, Supermarkets, and Airports throughout NYC in demanding better pay working conditions.

On December 6th we’re standing up to protect the right to organize!

Too many low wage workers rely on public assistance to get by in our economy. While workers throughout the city are making near or below minimum wage or are fighting to protect their wages and benefits, CEOs are making record incomes and their lobbyists are push our elected officials to cut spending on social programs and extend tax cuts for the richest 2%.

We won't stand for this. We won't stand policies that prioritize tax cuts for millionaires over funding programs that working families rely on. And we are telling workers who are struggling at work that we've got their back.

Stand with workers as they come together to demand better wages and working conditions and economic policy that’s good for all of us.

2. Great to see the support!

So glad to see people coming out in solidarity for the fast food workers. I'd be there if I weren't all the way in northern MI.



Julie~~with you in spirit
