Workers in the fast-food, home-care, and airline industries are involved in demonstrations and engaging in walkouts all over the United States on Thursday in a call for a heightened minimum wage of $15, among other labor demands.
Organizers of the “Fight for 15” campaign, which began in November 2012 and then spread to hundreds of cities and “33 countries on 6 continents,” expect Thursday’s actions to take place in 190 cities at fast-food chain restaurants like McDonald’s, Burger King, and Wendy’s, as well as major airports like John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
