Fight For Fifteen fast food worker's actions unfolded across the globe today. Here in Oakland at least three hundred people descended on the downtown McDonald's at 11:00 AM demanding a living wage.
Food chain employees in more than 30 countries are participating in the protests demanding their employers pay $15 an hour, the AP reports.
The Fight For 15 campaign, organized by the fast food union Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago, is backing the nationwide protests, including the demonstrations in Boston...
In Denmark, McDonald's worker Louise Marie Rantzau said the plan was to take a photo outside Burger King or other restaurants and post it on social media. Rantzau, who earns about $21 an hour, said a collective agreement with McDonald's in the country prevents workers from protesting the chain.
Below are tweet photos from around the globe.
