Show-Me $15 Organizing A Nationwide Strike On April 15th

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  Thousands of low-paid workers are expected to participate in a nationwide strike on April 15th. Local organizers with Show-Me-Fifteen made that announcement on Tuesday afternoon outside of the Ferguson McDonald’s.

This will not only include fast food workers, but also adjunct professors, and home healthcare workers.

Rabbi Susan Talve of the Central Reform Congregation, said that billion-dollar industries are making profits on the backs of the poor.  “We know that if you work full-time in America, you should make a living wage. If you work full-time in a America, nobody should have to give you a subsidy or a handout. Working full-time in America means you get to support yourselves and your families with a living wage and benefits and the only way that’s going to happen in America is with a union.”

More than two-thousand workers are also expected to gather at Skinker and Forsyth on the afternoon of April 15th for a march.
