Chicago’s fast food and retail workers, mostly adults with families, and those who support us are fighting for the just compensation and dignified treatment that all hardworking Americans deserve. As the Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago, we demand a fair wage of $15 an hour and the right to form a union without retaliation so we can support our families, strengthen Chicago’s economy, reduce crime, and improve our neighborhoods.
Each year, retail and fast food workers bring over $4 billion into the stores and restaurants of downtown Chicago alone, but almost all of these profits make rich executives and investors even richer while we struggle to provide ourselves and our families with basic necessities. We believe that people who work hard for a living should make enough to support themselves, their families and their neighborhoods – and that workers should be treated with dignity and respect. That’s why we’re coming together to Fight for 15.
