Fast Food Workers, ON STRIKE

BIG NEWS: Fast food workers are striking in HUNDREDS of cities on April 14. And MoveOn members around the country are standing with them.

Two years ago, a few dozen fast food cooks and cashiers went on strike in New York City. People said they'd never win, but those workers started a movement that has spread across the world. Since then, thousands of people working across a variety of industries have joined the fight—from home care workers to gas station attendants, Walmart workers to airport employees.

And on April 14, these workers are all coming together to make their voices heard around the nation. Will you join, too?

Yes! I believe every working American deserves fair pay, and I'll attend a Fight for $15 rally near me:

Fight for $15 Rally 
Forsyth Park (near Northeastern University) 
Huntington Ave and Forsyth Way  
Boston, MA 02115 
Date: April 14 
Time: 4:00 p.m.

I'll be there! > Read more
