Fighting our low-wage future

Fast food workers across the country have been standing up to the plate in the battle to reverse the decline of the middle class by going out on strike to protest their poverty-level pay.

In an economic recovery where most of the new jobs are part-time and pay low wages, fast food workers' demand for $15 an hour and the right to a union is something we can all support.
