McDonald’s has a dismal record on sustainability. The antibiotics, hormones, chemical fertilizers and toxic pesticides used in the livestock McDonald’s purchases are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions and water contamination. And McDonald's is a top user of palm oil, linked to the destruction of the world's most precious rainforests and orangutan habitats.
McDonald's doesn't treat its employees any better. Not only do fast food workers face major safety risks in the workplace, but McDonald’s pays its workers so little that they can’t support their families or make ends meet. Thousands of fast food workers are joining together on April 15 in the “Fight for 15” to take a stand to improve their lives and be able to provide for their families.
Stand up against the exploitation of our environment and people. Join in on April 15th for a day long action in support of a living wage on a living planet.
The events in the Bay Area will start at 6 AM, 801 Mission St. San Francisco, 9:30 AM, 4514 Telegraph Street in Oakland, and culminate at 3pm on the steps of Sproul Hall at Bancroft and Telegraph in Berkeley where Mary Kay Henry, President of SEIU, Michael Brune, ED of the Sierra Club, and Professor Robert Reich will talk about the movement for a non-exploitative economy.
