ON MAY 15 THE LOW WAGE WORKER STRUGGLE IS GOING GLOBAL
THIS IS A CALL FOR SOLIDARITY WITH THE GLOBAL FAST FOOD WORKERS STRIKE!
On May 15, fast food workers across the world – in more than 150 U.S. cities, and 33 countries - will hold the first and largest strike/protest for a living wage of $15 and the right to organize.
COME OUT & STAND UP for the rights and dignity of LOW-WAGE WORKERS!
This affects all of us! Whether you have a job or are jobless; whether you are a student or retired person; a member of a union or have no union. The majority of working people in this country make less than $15 an hour which means that thousands upon thousands of workers live either in poverty or close to the edge – while the corporate elites, the 1% are reporting billions in profits.
Philadelphia: Striking low-wage workers march for $15 and a union, September 4, 2014.
Eleven Philadelphia fast food workers and home health care workers were arrested as part of a national protest in 150 cities on Sep 7. Over 100 protesters marched a mile from a McDonald’s at Broad and Girard to a second McD at Broad and Arch, chanting and holding signs demanding “$15 and a union”. The rally ended with the arrest of 11 workers who refused to get off the street despite police orders.
