Adriana Alvarez: My Name is Adrian Alvarez [SP]. I work at McDonald's for about four years now and I make $9.15 an hour. Today, I was arrested because I wanted to show McDonald's that we're tired of their petty wages. I was willing to put myself out there, I guess, so they can see that we're done with everything, and I want to make my son proud.
Fifteen, I mean, would mean a lot to me and my son. It will change my life completely. I can get out of a basement I'm in. I can provide for him. You know, whatever he needs. It's not a question of do I get it this week? Do I get it next week? It's no he needs it now, OK get it. I can provide better schools for him.
I would like to tell McDonald's that you know your wrong. Why are you doing it? Stop being greedy. We fight hard everyday to live everyday and it's not adding up. It's ridiculous how much your making compared to what we're making. We're working for you. Take a second, think about it that there are children involved not just high school workers anymore. There are families involved.There may be small errors in this transcript.
