They’re fighting for a $15 hourly wage and the right to unionize

McDonald’s workers went on strike in 13 cities nationwide yesterday to protest workplace violence and sexual harassment and to advocate for a living wage of $15 per hour and the right to unionize. This nationwide “week of action” strategic blitz included Dallas as a key component, reports Eater.

As McDonald’s executives and investors attended the company’s annual meeting at the Grand Hyatt DFW Hotel at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, McDonald’s workers demonstrated outside the building.

The Dallas Observer described the scene on the ground, as presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders hosted a video town hall, and McDonald’s workers marched to the shareholders’ meeting room and presented a list of demands to a company rep. The workers then held posters and demonstrated outside of the Grand Hyatt DFW Hotel.
