Corruption at McDonald’s – a show of power or corporate greed?

(I’m passing on an email I got today… of interest to anyone studying U.S. society, i.e. all of us here in Norway!)

Lakia and Kwanza are former McDonald’s managers. They sat down for an interview to talk about how their superiors at McDonald’s forced them to cheat employees out of their pay. You won’t believe what they have to say.

When I was living out of my car, in the parking lot of the very McDonald’s where I worked, a lot of this same stuff happened to me. It’s so infuriating to see, but it’s not surprising. A new poll released today reports that 89% of fast food workers say it happens to them.

We need everyone to see this video. Watch it for yourself, and share it far and wide.

It’s pretty clear from the video that the whole industry needs to change, not just our wages – and that’s exactly why we’re fighting for $15 an hour AND the right to form a union without retaliation.

It’s good to know we can count on you to keep on making a difference.
