Faith and the Fast Food Strikes
June 26, 2013
The Rev. Liz Muñoz of St. James Cathedral recently spoke with the Center for American Progress about Chicago's fast food strikes, economic justice, and income disparity on the Magnificent Mile.
"It used to be that these jobs were summer jobs for high school and college students to make a little extra cash for tuition and for spending money. Nowadays the median age of a fast-food worker is 29. Also the majority of the people working in these jobs are women. This is a family issue. Talk about your family values; how are people going to support their families?"
