Minimum wage protest planned for Monday

Nov 27, 2016

Monday, some Michigan fast food workers and others are expected to walk out of their minimum wage jobs.

Strikes are planned in Detroit and other Michigan cities, as well as around the country.

Pastor W.J. Rideout is one of the organizers of the D15 campaign pushing for raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

“You will see us all over,” says Rideout, “and it’s going to have a great big large impact. It’s going to blow the minds of people.”

Rideout says the strike is taking place after the Thanksgiving holiday, so as not to inconvenience people while they are traveling to see family.
