AFL-CIO: Fight for $15 a Powerful Example of Collective Action

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–November 10, 2015.  Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on protests with fast food workers happening nationwide today:

“The Fight for $15 movement is one of the most powerful examples of collective action. Having a voice on the job is a basic right. Using that voice and demanding it be heard is both courageous and inspiring. These workers deserve $15 an hour and a union.

Whether advocating for social justice or raising wages, working people are beginning to fully realize the power of standing together. These are the movements that will make our workplaces fairer and our communities better.”
