Push for $15/hour: Fast food workers plan nationwide strike for Tuesday, November 10th
MILWAUKEE — There is a revived push to boost the minimum wage and influence the 2016 elections.
Fast food workers are planning a nationwide strike this coming Tuesday, November 10th.
Workers from 270 cities are expected to walk out on their jobs — demanding a living wage of $15/hour and the right to unionize.
At the same time, thousands of protesters are expected to make their voices heard on Tuesday at the GOP Milwaukee debate — at the Milwaukee Theatre.
The group representing fast food workers has been successful in influencing cities like New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles to establish a minimum $15 wage.
