Connections: Fighting for $15/hr. For Fast Food Workers

Apr 8, 2015

The 'Fight for 15' is happening next week. Fast food workers around the country will rally for a $15 per hour wage. What happens if they do get it? What about if they don't? We have an interview with KUOW's Deborah Wang who has reported on the 'Fight for 15'. Then we will discuss the rally and the reasoning behind it with our guests:

  • AJ, a Burger King worker who has been on strike twice with the campaign
  • Kim Ramos, former Wendy's employee and currently a Fight for 15 organizer.
  • Colin O’Malley, organizing director of Metro Justice
