Following $15/Hour Victories in CA, NY, PA, Underpaid Workers Intensify Call for $15, and Union Rights Nationwide with Record 300-City Strike, and Protests!

Fast-food, home care, child care, airport, higher education, hospital & other under-paid workers in the Biggest-ever day of global strikes and protests demanded 15 dollars and hour and union rights for workers everywhere. The workers and their supporters swept the country in protest to demand corporations pay workers wages they can live on and that giant companies like McDonald s pay their fair share of taxes. The workers zeroed in on McDonald s, the world s second largest employer and industry leader, as a symbol of what is wrong with the economy.

In New York and California, where workers already won $15, the protest was focused on the demand for union rights and on supporting the call for $15 by workers all across the country. Around the world, workers rallied in more than 40 countries on six continents, including a blockade at the McDonald s in Disneyland Paris; protests in the United Kingdom against zero-hour contracts, failing to guarantee workers a minimum number of hours; protests in Korea against unpaid hours and unsafe working conditions; and a series of marches against unfair labor practices in Brazil.

In New York City, the rally for $15 and a union was capped off by the thousands who marched from McDonalds, where the Fight for $15 started more than three years ago, across town to a $1,000/plate GOP gala, protesting against Donald Trump's opposition to raising minimum wages.
