More Than 100 Fast-Food Worker Strikes Set for Thursday

Maria Trisler

It’s on – this Thursday, fast-food workers like me are going on strike across the country. And it’s going to be bigger than ever before, with community members joining us at protests and rallies in hundreds of cities across the country!

Find out if there’s a rally near you and sign-up to show up on Thursday. Together, we’ll send the fast-food giants a loud and clear message.

I’m going on strike because I can’t make ends meet for me and my 12-year old boy on the $8.35 I make at McDonald’s – it’s just 10 cents more than minimum wage here in Peoria, Illinois.
