Almost seven years ago, when the first fast-food strike took place in the fall of 2012, everyone doubted us.
But our movement powered on and transformed the country. AND NOW, A $15 MINIMUM WAGE FOR ALL IS CLOSER THAN EVER!
The Raise the Wage Act just passed the House of Representatives, putting us closer than ever to raising the wage for EVERY worker.
We marched — in pouring rain, sweltering heat, and freezing snow — and all the strikes, the petitions, the phone calls, all of that work resulted in this win.
None of this could have happened without the dedication of workers showing up to fight for what we deserve every day.
We won’t stop fighting until every American has the means to lead the life they deserve.
