Fast food workers in 300 cities across the country will walk off the job on Thursday, April 14th, as part of the “Fight for $15” campaign. In the Bay Area, there will be demonstrations in San José, San Francisco, and Oakland.
Protest organizers say the National Day of Action will zero in on McDonald’s,
“The world’s second-largest employer and the industry leader in the fast food and service economies is driving a race to the bottom that is undercutting wages across the economy and resulting in nearly 64 million workers being paid less than $15. The workers will also highlight how McDonald’s tax avoidance around the globe hurts governments, workers, taxpayers and consumers.”
The Oakland demonstration takes place at Oscar Grant Plaza in front of City Hall, at 2 p.m.
