Domino’s Fires Workers Seeking Living Wage Because, What, They Expect A Living Wage?
by Abby Zimet
A Domino’s Pizza in New York City has reportedly fired 20 employees who joined last week’s nationwide fast food protests after they complained about unfair wages and lousy working conditions. The delivery workers, who are paid under $6 an hour and rely heavily on tips, confronted management after they were asked to work extended hours inside, with no tips or raise in pay to minimum-wage levels. Local politicians have taken up their case. One of many NYC companies accused of various forms of wage theft, Domino’s has already faced worldwide protests, employee shortages due to low wages, and charges of illegally firing a deaf kid for being deaf – and their pizza is gross.
