Fast Food Forward

Fast Food Forward is a movement of NYC fast food workers to raise wages and gain rights at work. It is part of the national movement of low-wage workers fighting for a better future. When we make enough to live - instead of barely getting by - our community and economy benefit. Since our first strike in 2011, we have won wage increases for 22 million Americans, including tens of thousands in New York State.
