Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Jeanina Jenkins of Low Pay Is Not Ok, and I started a petition to To McDonald’s and the other fast food giants: , which says:

I support the striking fast food workers. It's time to stop hiding behind your franchises and stop making excuses. It's time to pay your workers $15 an hour so they can support their families without relying on public assistance.

Fast food workers across the country are on strike. We're striking because no one who works for a living should be forced to live in poverty – not when we work for hugely profitable corporations. We're striking because McDonald's and the fast food giants continue to dismiss us, and refuse to give us the respect that any human being deserves. We aren't just striking for better pay and respect though, we're striking to survive – and we have no other choice.

We're willing to do whatever it takes to win $15 an hour and the right to form a union without intimidation. Stand with us by adding your name to our petition and share it far and wide after you have.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.
