Here’s an excerpt from Bishop Manz’s letter:
“McDonald’s attempt to silence the voice of the CIW farmworkers is unacceptable and unworthy of a company that prides itself on social responsibility.

Likewise, McDonald’s recent study of farmworker wages ignored both the CIW and numerous well-respected, independent studies—all of which make it quite clear that farmworkers earn sub-poverty wages—and resulted in a hastily-compiled, highly-criticized document that has done little more than cast doubt on your company’s hard-earned reputation as a leader in social responsibility.” READ THE FULL LETTER HERE
