That's Jose' Carillo.


He's 81 years old and was arrested for civil disobedience in front of the Times Square McDonald's on the morning of September 4, 2014.


If it weren't for food stamps and Medicare, Jose' says he wouldn't be able to take care of himself. He certainly isn't able to retire. But he said he would do whatever it takes for $15 an hour for his younger co-workers, who are struggling to raise families and survive.


McDonald's thinks they can ignore us or intimidate us, but they couldn't be more wrong. They should meet Jose' - and the other cooks and cashiers who have been arrested so that all of our voices can be heard.
