From our friends organizing around Fast Food Workers!
So next Thursday, April 3rd,  the Fast Food Workers will be having wage theft actions across the country. Our action will be at the Wendy’s at 4805 W Broad, at 5pm. But first we will meet at 4pm at the Weinstein Community Center on 5403 Monument Ave; to eat, make signs, practice some chants, and plan our action. Ideally, everyone will meet at the community center so we can all leave as a big group, but people can meet us at the Wendy’s right before 5 and wait for us to arrive. The entire thing should be over around 5:45.

This will be the biggest action we do till the next strike, so a huge turnout would do a lot to galvanize the workers and give us a lot of momentum to build up on. So please bring your members, friends, coworkers and family.

Here are some photos from today’s Raise Up! press conference, which was held at the McDonald’s at E. Broad and 18th.

The rain and the cold didn’t stop fast food workers, or supporting unions and organizations from showing up to take a stand against wage theft and abuse at work. Fast food workers demand respect, $15 an hour, an end to wage theft and more!

If you are a fast food worker who has experienced Wage Theft in the Richmond area, call 804 495 1439 to report it!  Or check out www.robbedonthejob.org

Next time hopefully the weather will treat us better and we will see more faces out to support Fast Food Workers! Unionizing in the South is hard, and vitally important. Support Southern workers, support Fast Food Workers! Everyone deserves a Living Wage!
