Big news – we’re pushing the March on McDonald’s to the next level: Organizations and leaders across the Trump resistance are joining us to demand McDonald’s support $15 and union rights.
McDonald’s is the Donald Trump of corporations.
Trump AND McDonald’s have a long history of sexual harassment, stealing from or refusing to pay employees, and ripping off taxpayers. Trump himself said wages are “TOO HIGH” – and we know all too well that McDonald’s agrees with that.
On May 23, we are joining up with major resistance groups from around the nation to take the #FightFor15 straight to McDonald’s doorstep and Trump – with a march from Trump Tower to the flagship McDonald’s in downtown Chicago
McDonald’s and Trump are dead set on undercutting our values, and we can’t let them. We need $15 an hour and union rights – and we need it now. And we won’t let McDonald’s, or Donald Trump, stand in our way.
As Carmen Perez, one of the co-chairs of the Women’s March put it: “Labor rights are women’s rights. The link between the gender justice and labor justice movements is strong – but often unacknowledged. Women’s March is proud to join Fight for $15 and others to rise up against unfair labor practices, economic exploitation, and workplace sexual harassment.”
“These fights are our fights, and the only way we win is together.”
