Tell Sodexo to Respect Its Workers

Sodexo is one of the largest food service and facility management companies in the world, making billions every year. But they pay many of their workers just 25 cents over minimum wage and often prevent workers from forming a union. That is why thousands of Sodexo workers have decided to go on strike.

Help support them by sending a letter to Sodexo executives telling them to respect their workers by providing a decent wage and benefits and allowing their workers to organize a union if they choose to.

      My mother has been working for Sodexo for over 5 years. My family and I have personally witnessed the abuse from Sodexo towards their employees.

      Their employees are treated inhumanely and are afraid of speaking up. They take advantage of the fact that their employees need their jobs and cannot afford to lose it. I'm appaled to see that a company can treat its employees so unfairly and get away with it. I want this company to be fair and treat their employees like human beings.

      Change needs to happen NOW.

      It's long overdue and it's the least that these hardworking people deserve.

      The hard work provided by full time employees should be considered when the condition of the economy is poor and still the rates and cost of daily living is unjust and still rising. Provided that the work we do for you is feeding YOUR family, where is the help to feed OURS...?!?!!!
