Today in NYC: Revolt Against the Injustice of Low-Wage Capitalism

Want a side of wage theft with your favorite holiday dish? The restaurant Dirty Bird uses it in the special sauce.

Join us today to support a cadre of fast-food workers who are standing up for their rights -- and the rights of millions across the United States. Like so many others, twenty one workers at the New York City restaurant Dirty Bird worked for years and years under unsafe, exploitative, and dishonorable conditions under abusive management who stole thousands of dollars from their wages each year. Finally, they decided that together they would demand better treatment and to be paid what they were owed.

Instead of justice, they were all fired at the same time. Now the workers have filed a lawsuit against the owners of Dirty Bird demanding justice -- and they are asking for you to stand up with them.
