Wage Theft Wednesday - March 19th 12pm

!Wage Theft Wednesday!
Join us for a  Rally + Press Conference to stand with local McDonald’s workers and fast-food workers from other companies as they share their stories of wage theft.

WHEN: Wednesday, March 19 - 12 PM
WHERE: Corporate Owned McDonalds
3531 Flat Shoals Rd Decatur, GA 30034

ATL Raise Up + Atlanta Jobs with Justice are hosting the first Wage Theft Wednesday highlighting the widespread issue of workers having their wages stolen in the fast food industry. We are joining a nationwide series of actions calling on the McDonalds to stop its illegal wage theft.

McDonalds is being sued in three states over widespread wage theft and we're finding that these issues exist here in Atlanta as well. We will not stand by while McDonald’s is robbing their employees of their already low-wages by forcing them to work off the clock, shaving hours off their time cards and not paying them overtime, among other practices. We demand that McDonald’s, which earned nearly $5.6 billion in profits in 2013, pay back the stolen wages and stop its illegal theft of workers’ pay.

Don't get Hamburgled by McDonalds!
