Fast food employees across the country are going on strike for better pay and better treatment.

Truth is, the companies we work for wish they could fire every single worker who goes on strike, but people like you can stop them.
Tell Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Burger King, Domino’s, Dunkin’ Donuts and all fast food chains not to retaliate against their employees. Sign the petition: http://tinyurl.com/kwu2j8p
