Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King marched with black sanitation workers in Memphis in a historic strike for higher pay and union rights. On February 12, fast-food workers are continuing Dr. King’s legacy by walking off the job to demand $15 and union rights for EVERY American.
Dr. King marched with striking workers 50 years ago because he knew that fair pay and good jobs are absolutely necessary to be treated with respect and to stand up to racist politicians. As he said then, “What good is having the right to sit at a lunch counter if you can’t afford to buy a hamburger?”
Today, the Fight for $15 is ready to do whatever it takes to win raises and union rights to give all Americans a shot at a decent life. Join us on February 12 to rally and protest America’s broken politics.
What: Fight for $15 Protest and Rally
When: February 12 @ 11 a.m. PST
