Nancy Salgado is fearless and has found her voice. Jeff Stratton, the president of McDonald's USA is not going to forget her.
He was giving a speech to the Union League Club in Chicago on Friday October 4, 2013. It was a fancy affair.
Suddenly, Salgado stood in the middle of the room and let her frustrations out on the Stratton.
"It's really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day."
The Chicago Tribune reports Salgado was there with a group of "Five for $15" protesters who had paid for tickets to the function. Salgado was furious and kept going.
"Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I've worked for McDonald's for ten years. "
Stratton was caught off guard. He told Salgado that he has been with McDonald's for forty years.
Security started circling around Salgado who was surrounded by the other protesters who stood silent as she kept yelling.
"I need a raise, but you're not helping our employees How is this possible?"
Salgado faces her day in court. She told Raw News that she was issued a ticket for criminal trespassing. Salgado loves her job, loves interacting with people and is still working at McDonald's.
According to the fast food chain's website, Stratton oversees more than 15,500 McDonald's restaurants in the U.S. and Canada.
It's estimated he makes more than 2 million dollars a year. Salgado says she'd be happy just to make $15 dollars an hour to help feed her kids and buy them clothes.
Here's Salgado's interview with Raw News.
