Despite It Destroying Their Jobs, Fast Food Workers To Protest For $15 Minimum Wage

A campaign to raise the wage for fast-food workers to $15 an hour is tying its fight to historical fights for civil rights as protesters plan to rally in Detroit and other cities nationwide on Monday.

The protests come exactly 50 years after the Memphis sanitation strike.

Employees at fast food restaurants across the country plan to walk off their jobs. They will begin protesting for a $15-an-hour salary, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The fast food employees will be joined by thousands of other workers protesting in two dozen cities across the nation who will show support for the strikers and the new Poor People’s Campaign.

A press conference and rally will be held at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park on the corner of West Grand Boulevard and Rosa Parks Boulevard at 12:15 p.m., followed by a march and protest at a local McDonald’s.
