The Poverty Strike

I’ve been inspired by yesterday’s poverty strike of fast-food workers who walked off their jobs to protest for better pay and working conditions. In order to help prevent potential retaliation from their employers, I joined community members in walking workers back to their jobs last night and this morning. I had a chance to talk to managers about the importance of creating good jobs in Seattle and asked that they recognize their workers federal right to strike by not docking pay, hours or worse, for yeseterday’s strike. Check out these photos from the action.
