A crowd of 1000 workers and supporters marched on the Republican debate Saturday, calling on candidates to support a $15 minimum wage and the right to unionize.
Among the crowd was Richard Baxter, a #FightFor15 member and Subway worker who makes $8.50 an hour. He said he plans to vote for the first time this year.
“Every election I’ve walked right past the ballot box — not into it — because I believed my vote wasn’t worth anything,” Richard said, “But the Fight for $15 has changed that. Across the country, workers are following presidential candidates everywhere they go to show we’re serious about supporting those who fight for $15 and union rights.”
