#workerwednesday Meet Pierre Odilus Metivier

Meet Pierre Odilus Metivier from Brooklyn. He joined the fast food campaign after his manager was disrespectful towards him. Peirre works at Wendy’s making $8/hour. He normally works twenty to thirty hours per week while also attending Plaza college.  His rent is $225 every two weeks.

 “After I joined, they started showing respect. I get more hours,” Pierre explained

Thinking of other fast food workers, Pierre would encourage them to join the campaign. Pierre says, “We all are on the same boat. You making $8.00, $8.25, $8.50, you cannot support your family that, so you need to get on board.”

After all,  “We deserve better than a minimum wage,” Pierre exclaims.
