Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Today’s Fast Food Strikes

Working families everywhere are inspired by the spirit and the courage of fast food workers who are striking today in over 150 cities. Every worker deserves fair wages and the right to form a union without retaliation because no one who works full time should struggle to support their family. That’s why the ‘Fight for Fifteen’ movement is growing bigger and protests are happening across America and six different continents. The message is clear: corporations should pay their employees fair wages and Congress should act so no one gets left behind. Only then will we have an economy that works for all working people.
