Rochester Brings the Fight For $15!
On September 4, 2014, Rochester's Fight for $15 campaign kicked off at the Wendy's at 1175 E. Ridge Road where Wendy's workers went on strike for $15 / hr and a union. In the video below, workers explain their current conditions and why they are demanding $15 / hr. and the right to organize a union.
From the event announcement:
At Pulaski Park (corner of Gothic St and Carter St), workers, politicians, religious leaders and community members will gather in support of a fast-food worker strike. Workers are courageously walking off the job to fight for $15 and the right to form a union. Please join them this Thursday at 9:45 am!
We will rapidly move on from this location! At 10am we will move to a nearby store where workers are striking! Don't be late!
Join the national movement for workers' rights!
