fast food worker protest

On August 29, workers will gather in cities across the nation, including half a dozen southern cities such as Memphis, Raleigh, N.C., and Tampa. They will be asking to be paid a minimum of $15 an hour and for the right to organize without retaliation. Currently, the median pay for the fast food workers across the country is just over $9 an hour, or about $18,500 a year.
