TYT Video: Wage Theft

Is the CEO of a fast food company really worth 1200 times what the typical worker earns? Does a CEO work 1200 times more hours?

What is wage theft? Wage theft is when a company has you work off the clock, or when the company has you buy your own uniforms, etc. Some franchises commit wage theft when the company headquarters forces them to lower costs.

Recently, fast food workers have gone on strike and filed lawsuits over wage theft and low wages. Over the past couple of years, there have been protests in New York, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Little Rock, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Cleveland, and Durham, North Carolina.

Cenk Uygur takes a look at wage theft, and promotes Wolf-Pac.com.
