Waffle House workers, seeking improved wages and workplace safety, rallied outside the company’s Georgia headquarters, demanding a $25 minimum hourly wage and 24/7 security. Organized by the Union of Southern Service Workers, the protest highlighted concerns about violence in the 24/7 establishments. Workers called for enhanced safety measures, an end to mandatory meal deductions, and the $25 hourly wage for all roles. Wages and safety are key issues, with some employees holding multiple jobs to meet financial needs. Waffle House, known for round-the-clock operation, has not yet responded to the workers’ demands.
