Fast-Food Workers Nationwide Strike For $15 Minimum Wage
In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, low-wage workers are showing their political power in hopes of a minimum-wage increase.By Ben Lawson | November 10, 2015
Fast-food workers in more than 270 cities staged a walkout Tuesday in demand of a $15 minimum wage.
The demands from the "Fight for 15" movement are far from new, but the walkout is being called the largest effort yet.
The battle for a $15 minimum wage in the fast-food industry was already won in New York, but local workers are still protesting in solidarity. This time around, the demonstrations aren't limited to food service, but include other low-wage industries like in-home health care, child care and maintenance. (Video via WPIX)
