NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Fast food workers in 100 cities across the country, including New York, have walked off the job, demanding a pay raise.
As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, a few hundred workers dropped their spatulas and picked up picket signs outside the McDonald’s on Broadway and 51st Street, chanting “We can’t survive on $7.25.”
“New York City is one of the most expensive cities in the country. We barely can survive on that,” McDonald’s food prep worker Louis Vasquez told Adams. “Five siblings that I live with, I have a single mother that I live with.”
