“Domino's said it had been overpaying the casual drivers since July 2011 and had adjusted its new adult wage rates to $15.51 an hour. It had been paying as much as $18.82 an hour,” Editor Tuck Thompson said, in his report. “Rates for workers under 21 ranged from $8.96 to $15.15 hourly.”
Jared Hoey, a USF student, went to the protest with members of his union, Industrial Workers of the World, in what was called an “international day of solidarity.”
“Hopefully our protest, and the ones of workers around the world in support of Domino's workers, will bring attention to it,” Hoey said, “and let Domino's know that the public is not okay with how they are treating their workers.”
Activists grouped and planned the protest with support from the International Workers Association and the Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation (ASF-IWA).
