Call to Action: Wendy's Restaurant


During last week's CSSJ Event 2016, participants learned more about labor trafficking and the efforts of the Immokalee farm workers to bargain for a penny more on each pound of tomatoes they pick. One holdout to their demands for better wages and work conditions comes from the Wendy's restaurant chain.

Fast food restaurants are some of the biggest purchasers of tomatoes. McDonald's, Taco Bell, Burger King restaurants joined the Fair Food Program, a unique farmworker- and consumer-driven initiative consisting of a wage increase supported by a price premium paid by corporate purchasers of Florida tomatoes, and a human-rights-based Code of Conduct, applicable throughout the Florida tomato industry ( 

The only major fast food company to not join is Wendy's.

We urge you to join us in this call to action to urge the Wendy's to join the Fair Food Program. You can do so by:

  • Calling Wendy's CEO
  • Writing a campaign
  • Donating to the Immokalee Worker.
