Fast food workers ready to intensify wage demands

Fast Food Protests

According to The Topeka Capital Journal, fast food workers say they are ready to intensify their campaign for higher wages and union representation, beggining with a national convention in Chicago where more than 1,000 workers will discuss the future of the effort that has spread to dozens of cities in less than two years,

About 1,300 workers are scheduled to attend session Friday and Saturday at an expo center in Villa Park Ill., where they will be asked to do “whatever it takes” to win $15-an-hour wages and a union, said Kendall Fells, organizing director of the national effort and a representative of the Service Employees International Union.
