Fast food companies steal from employees

Fast food companies are a $200 billion dollar a year industry. But obscene profit earned by paying workers poverty wages just isn't enough for them – they also steal money from employee pockets by bouncing paychecks, forcing staff to work unpaid and off the clock, and illegally deducting money for things like uniforms and trainings. This isn't some occasional incident – it's common practice. 84% of fast food employees surveyed have been stolen from in the last year. It's outrageous and must stop. Sign our petition to the worst offenders.

To the CEOs of McDonald's, Domino's, Papa John's, Yum! Brands, Wendy's and Burger King:

Where does your greed and exploitation of workers end? It's bad enough that you pay your employees – many of whom are adults with children – $7.25 an hour. But you also STEAL from them? You should be ashamed.

It's time for fast food companies like yours to do the right thing. You can start by paying the men and women you employ enough to support their families. And then stop stealing from them. Stop bouncing paychecks. Stop forcing staff to work unpaid and off the clock. And stop illegally deducting money for things like uniforms and trainings.

Stop preying on your most vulnerable workers and help get the economy moving again.
