There have also been reports that show Yum being accused of violating minimum-wage rules in China. The minimum wage paid in China can be as low as the equivalent of less than one U.S. dollar per hour. Due to these allegations and others Yum's chains were targeted in 2012 by U.S. fast-food workers. In November, the group named Fast Food Forward set up rallies and walkouts at different chain locations in New York City. The point was to their express support for higher wages and unionization, focusing on the demand for increased wages. This movement gained a great amount of support from the Service Employees International Union and spread to other cities like St. Louis, Seattle, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Detroit and Chicago. Focusing on a demand for an increase in industry wages to $15 an hour, the walkout movement, with substantial support from the Service Employees International Union, spread to other cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Seattle, Milwaukee and Kansas City. All of this led to the national day of strikes on August 29, 2013.

They believe in encouraging and empowering their employees and see the value of promoting the committed workers rather than hire from the outside. Chipotle has relied on internal promotions to staff about 85% of its salaried management and about 96% of its hourly management. They encourages a culture based on advancement through teamwork. This provides a clear direction of where the employees can go on the ladder of success and creates loyalty and minimizes...
