Have It Your So Good-Lovin' Way

Fast food workers
the world over
want a little extra cheese.

On the 15th of May
expect to see employees

from thirty-two countries
on five continents

hold solidarity protests
at McDonald's
Burger King and KFC franchises.

Given these corporations'
other recent efforts
to modernize their facades

for a pretentiously concerned
generation of aloof Millennials

who seem to like companies
that "care" and whatnot

maybe they thought
that sustainable living wages
were just too trendy.
