A fast food worker strike that began in New York City is now spreading nationwide. This week strikes are planned to take place in seven cities, making it the biggest fast food worker mobilization in the country’s history. Walk outs and demonstrations will be held in New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Milwaukee, Kansas City, and Flint, Michigan.
The strikes began in November in New York City when more than 200 workers walked off the job and demanded better wages.
Here’s Monday’s scene from New York City.
