Ahead of Labor Day weekend, yesterday marked the largest strike to ever hit the $200 billion dollar fast food industry. In 60 cities across America, workers walked off the job to protest for higher wages. Workers called on food giants like McDonald’s, Burger King, and KFC to pay them a minimum of $15 per hour and allow them to form a union without intimidation. Of course, McDonald’s insists that it “aims to offer competitive pay and benefits to our employees,” but a National Employment Law Project study found only 2.2 percent of fast food industry jobs are managerial and the average pay for a fast food worker is $8.94 per hour. Salon breaks down where all these protests might lead.
