The fast food workers are carrying signs with a slogans saying, "Super size my pay!," they demand a raise wages up to 15 dollars per hour.

The strike happened in the cities of New York City, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Missouri, and Flint, Michigan. The protesters are shouting, “Workers have a right. Fight, fight, fight!”

The National Employment Law Project (NELP) said that the average fast food worker makes only $8.94 per hour — scarcely more than half of what strikers say is a 'living wage.'"

NELP added, “Front-line jobs in the fast food industry — including cooks, cashiers, delivery workers, and other non-managerial positions — rank among the lowest-paying occupations in the US economy.”

I think and hoping this strike will make those fast food company to think more about the demand of their employees.

However, none of the fast food company had commented on the strikes.
