Congress Lacy Clay join fast food workers protest

FERGUSON, MO. (KPLR) – Protesters hoped it was the beginning of a fast food revolution, Monday: workers in seven cities, including, New York, Chicago, and St. Louis, planned to walk off the job this week, to demand higher pay; much higher.

One of the two so-called “strikes” in the St. Louis area was at the McDonald’s in the 9100 block of West Florissant in Ferguson, with more than 100 workers and activists.

Organizers said there would 60 or more walkouts Tuesday, just in St. Louis.

Worker Serena Williams decided to skip her shift at the McDonald’s and join the wave, whenshe saw the crowd on her way into work.
“I didn’t go in. I wanted to stand up for something right for a change,” she said.
