The beginning of the march from the Hull Street Library to the McDonald’s on Hull. I counted well over 50 people in the meeting room at the library, and more folks showed up as the strike went on.
There were many hand made signs reflecting the passionate thoughts and feelings of fast food workers on strike.
At the McDonald’s people energetically chanted to demand $15 an hour. The rain didn’t dampen spirits.
Aside from Fast Food Workers and their families, members of other unions came out to show solidarity.
There were multiple speakers, reflecting the diverse range of supporters. SONG- Southerners On New Ground a lgbtq organization in the south was there and gave an excellent speech. A local Reverend also spoke. The cohesiveness of the crowd was amazing.
