OUR Walmart, Fast Food Workers Will Join Forces on April 15

FightFor15-April15On April 15, members of OUR Walmart will join fast food, home care and airport workers across the country in the ongoing fight for decent pay, better schedules, and respect on the job at our country’s most profitable companies as part of the Fight for $15 movement.

Earlier this year, Walmart caved to pressure and raised wages for 500,000 workers.  Weeks later, McDonald’s, Target, TJ Maxx and Marshalls followed suit.  While these modest raises are a small victory, they’re not nearly enough to raise a family or keep food on the table without depending on public assistance to get by.

When we stand together, we win.  Let’s show companies like Walmart and McDonald’s that we’re ready to keep fighting for change and holding them accountable. With billions in profits each year, these companies can afford to pay working people a decent wage.
