Tell McDonalds to Stop Buying Luxury Jets Until They Pay Workers a Living Wage

Jet

More than half of low-wage workers employed by the largest U.S. fast-food restaurants earn so little that they must rely on public assistance to get by.

McDonald's is the worst offender, costing taxpayers $1.2 billion in poverty benefits for its employees. McDonald's claims that they operate on razor-thin profit margins and can't pay a living wage.

Yet they announced they had bought yet another brand new $35 million corporate jet for their fleet.

Marketing materials claim the jet, a luxurious Bombardier 605, "makes listening to Beethoven on the dual Blu-Ray Disc player, or watching a movie on either of the two 22” HD monitors, a real pleasure."  

It's not right to impoverish your employees while sailing above them at a rate of $2,500 an hour. It's immoral to do it with a taxpayer subsidy.
