More than any other labor dispute of the past three decades, Reagan’s confrontation with the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, or Patco, undermined the bargaining power of American workers and their labor unions. It also polarized our politics in ways that prevent us from addressing the root of our economic troubles: the continuing stagnation of incomes despite rising corporate profits and worker productivity.

Help Bring The Strike To Your Town
Print and cut out our campaign cards to let your local fast food employees know about the national strike.
As you go through the drive-through or order something at the counter, ask if the employee has heard about the national fast food strikes and if they think they get paid enough. If they answer “no,” hand them the card and ask them to get involved at www.LowPayIsNotOK.org.
