McDonalds Sends Employee For Medicaid & Food Stamps

McDonald’s knows they don’t pay their employees enough to get by. Everyone knows that by now.

But, I’ll bet you’d never guess what they said to full time ten year McDonald employee Nancy Salgado, when she called the employee “help line". Nancy said, "You see, my family rations our food each month, my heating bill is skyrocketing now that it’s fall, and I can’t afford to take my kids to the doctor. So when I heard about the employee help line, I called."

The McResource line was very polite to Nancy, they asked her to hang on so they could get her the Food Stamp and Medicaid numbers in Chicago.

This is what Americans pay for. We pay for the low wages these fast food restaurants have, by having to shell out for Food Stamps and Medicaid. Employees like Nancy, who work hard for years with these companies are never paid a living wage. The McResource line also told her to go to the food pantry.

52% of fast food families use public assistance. The government uses 7 billion to help fast food workers survive. Some of the companies are McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Domino’s, and Papa John’s. Sign the petition for a living wage HERE
