SIGN-MCDONALD'S NO NEW CORPORATE JET 'TILL LIVING WAGE FOR WORKERS

Friend,  please join with Daily Kos and Campaign for America’s Future by petitioning McDonald's CEO Donald Thompson to cancel his order for another corporate jet and instead pay employees a living wage. Click here to sign the petition.

According to a recent report, the McDonald's Corporation tops the list of fast-food companies whose employees are recipients of public assistance­—costing the public over $1.2 billion because they pay low-wages with little to no opportunity for benefits.

Now, it’s come to light that the McDonald's Corporation bought a $35-million-dollar luxury jet which costs at least $2400 an hour to operate. Yet their employees make so little they rely on public assistance just to get by.

Please stand with Daily Kos and Campaign for America’s Future by signing the petition telling Donald Thompson, CEO of McDonald's, to cancel his order for another corporate jet until he pays all his employees a decent wage

Keep fighting,
