Fast Food Fight for $15 and a Union.
Sep 4 @ 6:30 am – 11:00 am
Fast Food Fight for $15 and a Union. @ Oakland | California | United States
Fighting for $15/hour and a union: when we stick together we are heard. Join us this Thursday in Oakland! It’s just wrong that so many fast food workers aren’t paid enough to afford our basic needs, like food, transportation and housing. We’re united for a $15/hour wage floor and the right to form a union without retaliation. Raising pay will lift up our families and our community. Also a rally at 11 am at Oscar Grant Plaza More on facebook: East Bay Fast Food Workers & Twitter: @fairfastfood   56561

How to participate: Do have a website or blog? Get the code, and run it all day on September 10th. Know anyone with a popular iPhone or Android app? Ask … Continued
