Apple, Walmart, McDonald’s: Who’s the Biggest Wage Stiffer? | Alternet
So who’s the biggest wage stiffer? Apple is by far the worst in rewarding profitability. But Walmart underpays the most people, and McDonald’s pays the lowest wages.

Fast food workers have begun to speak up, in unison, about their low wages. And they’re being retaliated against, which we can help stop.
