We can’t survive at $7.25 ‘Fight for $15’ rallies at Birmingham McDonalds

mcdonaldOne Hundred Fifty fast food workers and their supporters rallied last evening at a Birmingham McDonalds at 1501 Fifth Avenue South. The group holding signs and banners was chanting: “We can’t survive on $7.25”, “Put some respect in my check”, “Nothing to loose but our chains …”
The Birmingham demonstration was one of hundreds in cities across the nation to push for living wages for fast food and other low paid workers.
“We are not giving up our fight for better wages just because Trump was elected President.“He needs to hear our demands for living wages,” said a protest organizer.
The group marched around the block passing a Captain D’s and stopping in at a Burger King – all places where people are working for unacceptable minimum wages.
