STOP THE GREEDY CLOWN
NEW VIDEO
slams Ronald McDonald on eve of INTERNATIONAL STRIKE

Washington, DC: On the eve of the biggest strike in Fast Food history, today The Agenda Project Action Fund released “STOP THE GREEDY CLOWN,” a behind the scenes look at Ronald McDonald working Republican politicians, trading campaign contributions for bad policy. The video–from the creators of “Granny Off the Cliff” and “Romney Girl“–comes on the heels of an announcement by McDonald’s that they are re-launching Ronald McDonald, complete with cargo pants and tweets.

“They need to re-re-launch Ronald McDonald,” said Erica Payne, President of The Agenda Project Action Fund. “Instead of cargo pants, give him a conscience.” Payne added, “The CEO of McDonald’s makes $9,247 an hour while the people who actually cook the food and serve the customers live in poverty. We need to stop the Greedy Clown before he destroys the country.”

The video ends by asking viewers to sign the Low Pay Is Not Ok petition which calls for $15 an hour wages and the ability to form a union without intimidation.

The FAST FOOD STRIKE will take place in 230 cities in 33 countries on six continents.
