Largest fast food strike ever today: 58 cities will be affected –

Fast food workers today plan to mount one-day walkouts against nearly a thousand stores in over fifty cities — the largest-ever mobilization against their growing, low-wage, non-union industry, which until last fall had never faced a substantial U.S. strike. The work stoppage comes four weeks after a four-day, seven-city strike wave in which organizers say thousands walked off the job.

Today, the strikes – which started with a single-city November work stoppage in New York — are expected to hit several cities. In each city – from Los Angeles to Peoria – workers are demanding a raise to $15 an hour, and the chance to form a union without intimidation by their boss.

  1. Hello Keith Wayne Brown,
    Thanks you for your post, Does it strike you as odd that the largest fast food chain on the planet would find it necessary to post a sign ( in an out of the way place btw ) ? Stating that employees are forbidden to communicate to any media concerning their place of work. your thoughts
    Kindest Regards
