NEW YORK CITY – Thousands of low-income workers from McDonald’s and other fast-food joints are gathering for major marches across the country.
Starting in New York City, these protesters are sparking the hashtag #FightFor15. They’re pushing for a $15 an hour minimum wage.
Earlier this month McDonald’s announced it would boost wages by a dollar for 90,000 of its employees. But, some employees say that extra buck just won’t cut it.
A study out from UC Berkley reveals 52% of fast food workers rely on public assistance just to get by.
Ronald might just have to hold those fries until he can supersize those wages.
