Democracy Now, October 18, 2013
LOW WAGES AT McDONALD'S, BURGER KING COST TAXPAYERS BILLIONS

New research shows more than half of low-wage workers at fast-food restaurants rely on public assistance to survive – a rate double that of the overall workforce. According to researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, low wages in the fast-food industry cost American taxpayers nearly $7 billion every year – that’s more than the entire annual budget of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A companion report by the National Employment Law Project found McDonald’s alone costs Americans $1.2 billion annually by paying its workers insufficient wages. Last year the top 10 largest fast-food companies alone made more than $7.4 billion in profits.http://www.democracynow.org/2013/10/18/super_sizing_welfare_costs_low_wages

Rishi Suresh's curator insight, December 11, 2014 11:32 AM

This is an interesting article connecting eating to drug use. The connection is quite obvious, as food also causes a dopamine release. It is an interesting comparison, because it implies that the majority of the Western world is suffering drug addiction to food.
