If I remember correctly, vfat does not understand permission so files are
always owned by root:root ; even if you manage to change the permission of
a file the filesystem doesn't know where to store this data, so the the setting
is not persistent.

but umask usually works for me, try

$ sudo mount -o umask=000 /dev/sdc1 /media/working
