On September 2, 2013 the Washington Post published a reflection by Fr. Fred Kammer, SJ on the dignity and right to just wages for fast-food restaurant workers in the United States. In "Labor Day justice: What’s the real cost of your cheap, fast food?", Fr. Kammer notes the growing economic inequality across the nation and the stagnation of wages and salaries, especially for those at the bottom of the income scale. Due to this, Fr. Kammer echoes the call of other religious leaders for an increase in the minimum wage to a just wage.
