These Fast Food Chains Are Exploiting Prison Labor

In a disturbing revelation, it has come to light that major fast-food chains, including McDonald's, KFC, Wendy's, and Burger King, are implicated in the exploitation of prison labor in Alabama. This practice, described in a lawsuit as a "modern-day form of slavery," forces incarcerated individuals to work for little to no pay, benefiting these corporations while violating fundamental human rights and anti-human trafficking laws.

Sign this petition to demand that McDonald's, KFC, Wendy's, and Burger King immediately cease their involvement in the exploitative use of prison labor and commit to ethical labor practices.

The lawsuit highlights a system where prisoners are subjected to inhumane working conditions, including long hours without pay, threats of solitary confinement for non-compliance, and even physical and psychological abuse. This exploitation echoes the dark era of convict leasing in post-Civil War America and is a blatant violation of the rights and dignity of incarcerated individuals.

Boycotts and bad press have historically driven corporations to change their policies. It's crucial that these companies recognize the severity of their involvement in prison labor exploitation and take immediate action to rectify it.

Join us in demanding accountability and ethical labor practices from McDonald's, KFC, Wendy's, and Burger King. Sign this petition to insist they stop using prison labor and uphold human rights and dignity in their business operations.
