Tuesday, April 14, 2015 (Richmond Hill, Ontario) –
Tomorrow at 11:30 there will be rallies in front of McDonald’s in 4 Ontario cities as part of a global mass mobilization day to support the growing movement for a $15 minimum wage in the United States in solidarity with low-wage workers.
“We’re showing our support for workers earning poverty-level wages in the United States. We want to help build that movement for a just society,” said SEIU Healthcare president Sharleen Stewart. “Fight for 15 is all about justice for working people so that everyone can earn a living wage. Profitable billion-dollar companies can certainly afford it.”
