Fast Food Workers In Boston Are Planning to Protest

Fast food workers are planning to protest in Boston. Cooks and Cashiers from McDonald's, Burger King and other restaurants are planning to walk off the job to call for a $15 an hour minimum wage.

currently, they are also pushing for union rights for fast food workers and a paid medical leave bill before Massachusetts law makers.

The Labor day protest will start at 6 p.m at Tremont Street McDonald's on Monday which will be followed by a rally.

If Law Makers fail to act on the bill, they are also backing two proposed ballot questions, which are raising minimum wages from $11 to $15 per hour and guaranteed workers have access to paid family and medical leave from their employers.

This Protest is part of a national wide demonstration. Organizers said that there was a lot of progress over summer, Minneapolis adopted a $15 an hour minimum wages and mayors in Atlanta and Cleveland said that they are planning on doing the same.
