Already losing market share to more innovative restaurants that are dropping GMOs (Chipotle) and toxic chemical ingredients (Panera), McDonald’s is about to be hit with a massive worker protest. “McDonald’s workers will gatecrash the burger company’s shareholder meeting later this month with ‘the biggest ever protest’ demanding an end to ‘poverty wages’ paid to many of its 420,000 staff,” reports The Guardian.
Workers are fed up with being paid wages so low that they have to live on food stamps and government assistance. They want McDonald’s and other fast food corporations to raise their pay above the level of poverty, helping them live financially sustainable lives while serving genetically modified, chemically engineered “food” to customers. After all, don’t we all deserve to make a living while we’re engaged in the killing of customers with toxic food? MORE
