Fast Food Workers Strike In Day of Protest

December 5, 2013: Today fast food workers went on a one-day strike demanding higher pay in more than 50 cities across the country.

The growing “Fight for $15” movement is mobilizing fast food workers and their allies in labor and the community to demand an end to dead-end, poverty-level wages and that the $200 billion-a-year industry provide living wages to its hundreds of thousands of workers in the fast food sector.
