QSR workers hold first convention to support minimum wage fight

 
July 28, 2014

More than 1,000 quick-service employees from around the country participated in the first-ever National Fast-Food Worker Convention last weekend. The convention was held in Chicago and included speakers such as Rep. Keith Ellison, SEIU President Mary Kay Henry and North Carolina NAACP President the Rev. Dr. William Barber II.

At the center of the spotlight is the fight for a $15-an-hour minimum wage, up from the current federal level of $7.25.

During the convention, workers planned to vote on a resolution to "do whatever it takes" to win their campaign, according to the Associated Press.
