  Original Published: 10/16/2013 More than half of fast-food workers receive some form of public assistance becaue their wages aren't enough. Those are the findings of a new university collaboration study out today. The report estimates that the public aid these workers receive equals about $7-billion taxpayer dollars. A separate report by the National Employment Law Project blames the nation's ten largest fast-food companies for more than half the cost to taxpayers. Both studies support claims by fast-food workers who are pushing for a $15-an-hour wage, and the right to have unions.
