This Thursday fast-food workers have planned to stage a walkout in cities around the country to push fast-food restaurants like McDonald’s to pay their workers higher wages. There have been walkouts like this since last November in New York and have spread to cities like Detroit, Chicago, and Seattle. The reason they what to push for higher wages is because the $7.50 that workers are being paid is not enough to support them. McDonald’s said that wages are raised depending on the worker’s position and the level of experience. McDonald’s also said that if they were to raise their wages that means they’d have to raise the costs of their food leading to the downfall of the successful cheap food that they provide. I thought this article was interesting because I had not heard of these strikes and thought it was interesting to read that workers are fighting for fair pay. After reading the article I agree that the workers should be paid more because they just stand the whole day taking orders from customers and to receive a small amount for the hours they work can be frustrating.
