Fast Food Workers to Protest Thursday
Workers at several Boston fast-food restaurants are expected to take part in a nationwide protest tomorrow, walking off the job in support of higher wages and benefits.
The “Globe” says up to 200 workers are expected to participate outside nine of the biggest fast food chains, including McDonald’s and Dunkin’ Donuts. The day of protests will end with a rally on Boston Common.
Many of the workers known they could be fired for the action, but the group MassUniting is calling on politicians and community leaders to walk those employees back into their restaurants in order to help them keep their jobs.
