#829strike: Fast food workers go on strike and ask for higher wages

Last year, on “Black Friday” fast food workers in New York went on strike and demanded higher wages in the Fast Food Forward campaign.

This energy and new infusion of energy in the diminishing labor movement was a sight for sore eyes and certainly illustrated that as much as the Koch Brothers and Republicans try, they cannot kill the labor movement and the energy of workers demanding fair pay and treatment.  We’ve covered additional strikes across the country over the past 9 months, but today is the big day.

Today is the largest strike in history as worker in nearly 50 cities are striking, demanding minimum wage be raised to $15 and the right to form unions.
