CHICAGO — On May 15, fast-food workers took their campaign for $15 hourly wage, an end to wage theft and the right to form a union to the next level by calling a global strike in more than two dozen countries on six continents. Workers in more than 100 cities in the United States walked off the job in protest of oppressive wages and working conditions. This is the biggest day of action fast food workers have planned to date.
At Interfaith Worker Justice, we're excited to welcome fast-food worker leaders to our National Conference June 22-24. Worker leaders from the campaign will share their stories of struggle and strength and together we'll exchange ideas about how to get involved in your community to transform the way we think about workers.
