Fast Food Workers Rise Up
Fast Food Workers went on a 1 day strike for $15 an hour wages, for a union contract and against illegal retaliation and intimidation. Nov 29-30, 2012. NYC.
This is a huge deal. 2.7 million US jobs are in the fast food industry, which is a 47% increase from a decade ago. The modern American working class works in the fast food and retail industries - industries that are notorious for their exploitation and for the difficulty with which its workers can be organized (due in part to high turnover). Despite the fact that many still see fast food employment as temporary and largely part-time, more and more people have little choice but to try to support themselves and their families by working in the industry. Labor organizing in this industry is of the utmost importance both for labor, and for the good of the working class.
Take it from a food service worker.
Just a few more days and we leave to start shooting Parts Unknown. Our new ZPZ made series for CNN.
White people are going to love this.
This project of Anthony Bourdain’s is called: The Mind of a Chef and it premieres on PBS November 9, exploring the inner workings of Chef David Chang.
Chang makes connections between food and science in this new PBS show. We’ve been waiting for something like this to come along.
Watch the preview. We can’t wait for this show!
