McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.
"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.
Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.
“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”
“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.
“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.
At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.
She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.
“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”
“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”
Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.
“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”
I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.
Wait a second, am I tripping balls?
HELP I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING
Sometimes life is just beautiful.
why is tumblr roleplay so disgusting you are honestly disgusting allow me to explain why
that is a post danni made lmao im sorry that you feel the need to be so petty as to LIE about things to make danni look worse and to make yourself look holy and like thou art the tumblr police
because let me just
and is2g if yall start getting angry about how i addressed it yall can kindly take a slide into a garbage chute because at the time i was also experiencing shit irl and in rp (IRONICALLY. FROM THE SAME GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO DONT LIKE DANNI WOW COINCIDENCE) and i was Not In The Mood to snap and scream and i was p damn shocked that this had happened at all
yall are fucking children
people make mistakes people mess up its what people do
if yall have never made a mistake or have never messed up something esp something about people so diverse and different as the trans community you are fucking LYING
LMAO as someone who is trans themselves im honestly fucking ASHAMED of being a part of this kind of community that spreads this sort of animosity
and those logs arent even half of how much danni has apologized to me JUST ME personally this isnt even counting the amount of times danni apologized on their personal, on their roleplay blogs, to other PEOPLE
ive seen danni get death threats ive seen danni run off ALL of their blogs and descend into alcoholism all because NO ONE believes that theyre sorry and wont do it again ive seen danni get SUICIDAL over this
what the fuck is wrong with you people. why do you think this is okay behavior. why do you believe this is okay?? you dont have to talk to danni. you dont have to direct a word at them. but doing these sort of call out posts that ARE NOT TRUE and just breed hatred and make people pick sides without truly knowing the full story is bullshit.
and im talking from someone who used to hate danni, because god knows i know danni is not a saint. danni has made a lot of mistakes, but i am a witness that whenever danni says they’ll never do something again, they dont. that when danni firmly state they will make it up to someone, they do, in every manner and way they can handle.
and yall mean well. you do. im not gonna take it away from you guys that you just want to feel safe, you want people to know, you want people to stop doing this shit bc its harmful. man i get that. you guys deserve a safe space, you do. but danni deserves a shot. man, danni deserves for this to be buried already. if you guys dont wanna associate w danni, thats fine, thats your decision and no one can make you change it.
but for fucks sake can you stop pushing danni into a hole? can you stop isolating people, pushing people to make a decision on who’d they’d rather be friends with? can you stop breathing hate?
yall shuold have tshits as the danni hate squad cause it sure seems like all you do now is dedicate yourself to that and its kind of sad to see
id ignore it if it wasnt fking affecting my best friends ability to feel safe. with you guys around and that sort of seething hatred, id prob feel like someones gonna be out to get me/kill me too. yall are disturbing and frightening and you need to really. REALLY. stop.
