Nationwide Fast Food Protests Today 12/5/13

Are you concerned about the ever-increasing wealth inequality gap in the United States? Are you noticing the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? Tired of feeling trapped, helpless, stuck? Join the thousands of people being the change, making their voices heard, and making a difference in over 100 different cities today 12/5/2013 and demand a living wage minimum wage. Because nobody who works full time for a living should go hungry! It's time we reclaim the American Middle Class and demand the rich owners of this country pay their workers, off whom their fortunes are made, a living wage of $15 dollars per hour. All workers in the USA should make at least $15 dollars an hour if you adjust for inflation. For example do you know what the fast food workers minimum wage is in Australia? (Spoiler Alert: It's $17 dollars an hour!) It's time the masses fight back, if you're tired of being screwed it's time to get active. 

Find your local #FastFoodStrikes #FightFor15 Protest Today here: http://events.lowpayisnotok.org/

Be sure to share your stories and experiences with Filter Free Radio! We want to hear how your protest is going! 1-503-746-TALK

Jacob Dean of FFR will be at the protest in Portland at McDonalds 1035 SW 6th Ave Portland, OR 12/05/2013 at 12:00p Noon.




2013 Black Friday Walmart Protest in Portland, OR 11/29/13

Jacob Dean attends his local Black Friday Walmart protest in SE Portland, OR for a second year in a row! About 100 protesters, marchers, singers and sign-holders braved the cold to make their voices heard. A march led the protesters all around the parking lot while security and police enforced no-trespassing on Walmart property. Several speakers gave crowd-energizing and inspiring speeches including Portland City Commissioner Steve Novick, CWA Local 7901 President Madelyn Elder, Diana Wu of Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon, Reverend Eugene Ross of United Church of Christ, and many more! Thank you to everyone who participated in the resistance today! Keep up the good fight and we'll see you again next year! Recorded live on scene by Jacob Dean November 29, 2013.

Lets Talk Turkey, Are You Thankful For Unfettered Capitalism?

Lets Talk Turkey... Are You Thankful For Unfettered Capitalism This Thanksgiving? How do you feel about the big retail chains opening on Thanksgiving day for "Black Friday" deals on cheap crap from China? What does it say about us that Kmart is opening at 6am on Thanksgiving for "Black Friday" or Best Buy at 6pm on Thanksgiving, JC Penney at 8pm, Kohls at 8pm, Macys at 8pm, Sears 8pm, Toys R Us at 5pm and of course Walmart is open 24/7. How do you feel about being bombarded with consumption? Being consistently called "consumers" referred to and noticed only by our pocket books and not necessarily as human beings? How would you feel having to go into work and miss out on a Thanksgiving meal with your family just so the CEO of the company you work for can make more millions or did you have to work on Thanksgiving? Plus find the local Black Friday protest near you at http://www.blackfridayprotests.org Jacob shares where the local Portland protest will be and more! Recorded live on 11/25/2013 - from FFR Episode #100.

 

I found this remarkable story below following this broadcast and have to share this with you! Meet Tony Rohr, a former Pizza Hut manager working there for over 10 years, has been fired for refusing to open on Thanksgiving this year! Corporate Pizza Hut made the decision to open the stores on Thanksgiving (one of only two days a year Pizza Hut is closed the other being Christmas) following after other retail chains doing the same. Good on you Tony!
