Largest Walkout in U.S. History of Fast Food Workers Begins in Seven Cities TL;DR? Here's the article summary: Crossposted on Tikkun Daily By David Harris-Gershon (@David_EHG) The largest mobilization of fast food workers in U.S. history, organized by Fast Food Forward, ... TL;DR? Here's the article summary: Crossposted on Tikkun Daily By David Harris-Gershon (@David_EHG) The largest mobilization of fast food workers in U.S. history, organized by Fast Food Forward, begins today in New York, Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City and Flint, Michigan. What it does, in truth, is establish how it is virtually impossible to survive on a minimum wage salary provided the fast food chain. Today’s striking workers will be demanding that fast food companies raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour, enabling hard-working employees to actually afford being able to feed their families and provide their children with health care: Per a statement from Fast Food Forward: In America, people who work hard should be able to afford basic necessities like groceries, rent, childcare and transportation. Raising pay for fast food workers will benefit workers and strengthen the overall economy. Jonathan Westin, New York’s director for Fast Food Forward, credits the strikes for making the issue of minimum wage one that has become more prominent in public discourse: “The more and more workers continue to take action and continue to publicize their fight, the more and more it starts to get at the fast food industry’s biggest asset, which is their name brand.
