Women make up the majority of the fast food workers, because they truly never wanted to leave the kitchen. —

A woman’s place is in the union!
The truth is a job doesn’t necessarily mean an adequate income. There are some ten million jobs that now pay less than the minimum wage, and if you’re a woman, you’ve got the best chance of getting one. Why would a 45-year-old woman work all day in a laundry ironing shirts at 90-some cents an hour? Because she knows there’s some place lower she could be. She could be on welfare. Society needs women on welfare as “examples” to let every woman, factory workers and housewife workers alike, know what will happen if she lets up, if she’s laid off, if she tries to go it alone without a man. So these ladies stay on their feet or on their knees all their lives instead of asking why they’re only getting 90-some cents an hour, instead of daring to fight and complain. — Johnnie Tillmon, explaining the politics of welfare-shaming and low-wage work
I was with the FF15 people as it was, but after starting at Radioshack, a place people wouldn’t expect to pay minimum wage, and after my first day, I sat down and looked at the money and I figured out that I was only going to be making just enough to constantly stay a month behind on my rent. Now its really hitting home.
