ACORN Messing With Your Big Mac

The New York Times reports that union organizers are trying to convince fast food workers to unionize.

The effort is being led by New York Communities for Change which is the name of the reorganized and rebranded former ACORN office in Brooklyn.

“I feel I deserve $15 an hour,” said Linda Archer, 59 a McDonalds cashier. “I work very hard.” Archer currently earns $8 an hour and averages 24 hours a week.

In 2010, an ACORN spokesman confirmed to the New York Post that New York Communities for Change, “has many of the same board members as ACORN, shares similar goals” as the former liberal organizing activist group. The group also reportedly took over the lease of ACORN office building in New York.
