American employees at fast food restaurants like McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC are due to join their counterparts in dozens of cities around the world on May 15 to walk off the job and demand a raise to $15-an-hour
Fast food workers frustrated by low wages will participate in an organized, global walk-out in protest next week in as many as 150 cities, an advocacy group said Wednesday.
The strike’s announcement, at a New York City McDonald’s on Wednesday, came days after fast-food workers and union leaders from across the globe came together for the first time at a meeting organized by the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering and Tobacco Allied Workers’ Associations (IUF).
