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

When I remember that time my boss taunted me about being stuck doing carts in the rain by asking “Well what are you going to do?  Go on strike?” and then I did go on strike three weeks later

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.

Solidarity forever!  Whenever people tell me that we can’t stand together, I remember this from the short two days I spent in the Wisconsin capitol building.

Waitress Finds ‘None, N****r’ Written As Her Tip From Racist Customers (IMAGE)
19-year-old nursing school student Toni Christina Jenkins works at a Red Lobster in Nashville, Tennessee to earn a living. Working in the food services sector isn’t an easy job. Sometimes waitresses have difficult customers and sometimes they have awesome customers. But what Jenkins wasn’t expecting was to be targeted by racists.
According to her interview with the Daily Mail, Jenkins had to put up with a couple of rude customers. She, of course, did her job with outstanding professionalism. She was polite, took their order, and gave them the receipt so that they could pay for their food and leave a tip if they so chose.
However, instead of leaving a couple dollars or just leaving the section blank like most civilized customers do, this duo decided to expose their racism and promptly scribbled ‘None, N****r’ as her tip.



“I don’t get tips all the time. I really don’t care cause God is my provider I don’t worry about tips,” Jenkins told the London paper.
“They were extremely rude, but I introduced myself to them and they didn’t respond. When I came to take their order, they simply told me they wanted their food and to put everything in a to-go box. I offered them dessert but they told me abruptly that they just wanted the check. When I went back to the table they had gone and left the receipt and had written the comments. It’s all very surprising to me.”


Shocked, Jenkins took a photo of the receipt and the offensive message written on it and posted it on her Facebook page. She urged her friends to share it so that it would create awareness. Of the receipt, Jenkins wrote:


“This is what I got as a tip last night … so happy to live in the proud southern states … God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee.”


Here’s an image of the receipt:


And then these are the same pieces of shit who will claim black Americans don’t work for what they have and just “sponge off of the system”. This woman IS working and yet here is the treatment she gets from white America represented in one photo.

Well, Devin Barnes in Nashville, I guess you’ll know what’s happened when everyone hates you. 

Stand with Toni Jenkins!  No to racism!  No to poverty wages!
