The National Restaurant Association (NRA) which represents all of the million dollar fast food chains is leading the corporate war against raising the wages of all low paid workers. It spends millions of dollars annually fighting efforts to raise the minimum wage at both local and national levels, to oppose paid sick leave, and other workers rights.
The main purpose of their national ‘Public Affairs’ conference in Washington D.C. is to strategize against the low wage workers movement and to bribe Congress with big $ checks to oppose any increase in the minimum wage.
Whether you have a job or not, whether you are a student or retired, whether you have a union or not– this affects all of us.
Join the protest on April 29, to support the low wage workers movement for justice – demand $15 an hour and the right to a union!
