[español al final de la página]

In June, workers at McDonalds in Westlake Village, CA were denied their raises despite already making below living wage. 

Minimum wage for crew members is just $13/hr. That doesn’t seem too bad but once you match it to living wage, things start to get a little bit scary. One person's living wage is $14.80 in Ventura county [source: Massachusetts institute of technology’s living wage calculator, amount an individual needs to earn (before taxes) to cover all basic household expense (food + healthcare + housing + transportation + childcare + other necessities)].

This number gets worse when children are in the equation. Each parent with one child requires $17.21 And A SINGLE PARENT WITH ONLY ONE CHILD REQUIRES $31.49. This. is. insane.

We deserve to be paid fairly for our work. We deserve to be able to provide for ourselves when we have shown we put in the work. Our restaurant is constantly pushing us to be the fastest in our county yet I will always be paid below living wage, its not fair.

WITH THIS PETITION WE DEMAND THAT A SYSTEM BE PUT IN PLACE TO REVIEW AND RAISE WAGES SEMI ANNUALLY IN ACCORDANCE TO INFLATION TO MATCH THE AMOUNT NEEDED FOR ONE INDIVIDUAL

thank you for reading, keep working hard.

Espanol:

El salario mínimo es de $ 13 / hora. Eso no parece tan malo, pero ahora las cosas se ponen aterradoras. Una persona necesita $ 14.80 para sobrevivir en Ventura [calculadora del salario del instituto de tecnología de Massachusetts]. Este número empeora cuando tienen niños. Cada padre con un niño necessita $ 17.21 Y UN SOLO PADRE CON SOLO UN NIÑO NECESSITA $ 31.49 ¡esto es una locura! 

Nos merecemos que nos paguen justamente por nuestro trabajo. Merecemos ser capaces de mantenernos a nosotros mismos cuando hemos demostrado que hemos puesto el trabajo. Nuestro restaurante nos empuja constantemente a ser los más rápidos de Ventura, pero siempre pagarán por debajo del salario mínimo, no es justo.

CON ESTA PETICIÓN DEMANDAMOS QUE SE PONGA UN SISTEMA PARA REVISAR Y AUMENTAR LOS SALARIOS SEMI ANUALMENTE DE ACUERDO CON LA INFLACIÓN PARA ALCANZAR LA CANTIDAD NECESARIA PARA UN INDIVIDUAL

gracias por leer, siguen trabajando duro.
