Fast Food Workers and Retail Janitors Strike to #ReclaimOurCity in the #Fightfor15: Black Friday 2015
Over 500 striking workers and community allies took to the streets in Minneapolis this on November 10, 2015! The day started bright and early at 5:30am in a picket with striking fast food workers at the McDonald’s at University and Broadway in Northeast Minneapolis. Workers then marched to the Macy’s in Downtown Minneapolis for a picket against cleaning companies with striking retail janitors. Finally, striking workers joined hundreds of other low-wage workers in a rally inside of Minneapolis City Hall.
