The “Fight for $15” will take to the streets of Pittsburgh April 15th.
A small group of fast food workers and Pittsburgh organization heads gathered Tuesday in front of the Northside McDonalds to announce plans to strike for an increased minimum wage.
Lolene Germany, a worker at KFC, said the strike will call for fair treatment in the workplace as well as fair wages.
“We wanted to let people know that if you support what we’re doing and you feel like you’re being disrespected at work, wherever you work – at a healthcare, fast food, retail – just come out and fight with us,” Germany said. “And let them know that you’re going to get your respect and you’re going get what you deserve.”
