Scenes From Yesterday’s Worldwide Fast Food Strikes
Yesterday we wrote about how fast food workers united to participate in the most widespread strike in the history of the fast food industry. Employees of fast food restaurants across the United States and around the world took the risk of walking off the job to demand higher pay, better treatment at work, and the opportunity for those who work hard to get ahead. All told, there were strikes in 230 cities, in 33 countries, on 6 continents around the world — including 150 cities in the United States.
