Raise the WAGE ! Solidarity with Burgerville Workers

Vegans are in solidarity with the Burgerville Workers Union (BVWU) and their efforts to secure higher wages, regular schedules, and respect from their employers. We understand the importance of treating workers well, and we know that Burgerville can financially sustain paying living wages and granting workers better benefits. We cannot talk about "farm fresh" and "sustainable food" without addressing working conditions, food production, factory farming, and capitalism at large. We support Burgerville workers who are advocating for themselves and our community of both human and non-human beings and fully endorse the efforts of the Burgerville Workers Union. We know that Burgerville's investment in securing profits not only compromises the working conditions for folks, but the conditions that our food is prepared in. It's their interest in profit which leaves workers outside of Burgerville working in unsafe factory farms and animals in horrifying conditions. Our commitment to supporting Burgerville workers must extend beyond their struggle and into struggles for food justice and animal liberation at large.  We are calling upon Burgerville CEO Jill Taylor and Burgerville LLC to recognize the Burgerville Workers Union, to negotiate with workers, and to actually think about what it would mean to truly "serve with love" and embrace the both human and non-human community at large.
