Join CAIR-Chicago May 25, 2016 from 12pm – 6pm at McDonald’s Headquarters, 2715 Jorie Blvd., Oak Brook, IL 60523
CAIR-Chicago ‘s Outreach Coordinator Gerald Hankerson and CAIR-Chicago Interns have attended the Fight for 15 rally held at the corporate headquarters of McDonald’s for several years.
The issue on increasing minimum wage has been in the limelight since November 29, 2012 when fast-food employees from Burger King, Taco Bell, along with McDonald’s joined together in New York to picket for an increase in minimum wages to $15. More than a year later on December 5, 2013, thousands of retail and fast-food workers gathered in over 100 cities across the nation to continue the effort. Ever since then, more people have joined Fight for 15’s efforts and consequentially, the organization has succeeded in grasping national attention.
