Half of all Fast Food workers receive public assistance
More than half of fast food workers receive some form of public assistance because their wages aren't enough.
Those are the findings according to a University of California Berkeley Labor Center study.
The report estimates that the public aid these workers receive equals about seven billion taxpayer dollars.
The study supports claims by fast-food workers who are pushing for a 15-dollars-an-hour wage and the right to have unions.
