Fast Food Workers Set to Strike in 100 Cities, Not Dayton
DAYTON -- Fast food workers across the nation are preparing to walk off the job in protest of low wages. Workers in 100 cities are expected to participate, but is Dayton one of them?
Good news all you fast food lovers out there. It looks like you'll still be able to get your Big Mac and fries tomorrow without any interruption.
Organizers say thousands of workers are ready to set down their spatchulas and walk away from their cash registers across the nation tomorrow.
Thursday's walk out is set to be the largest effort in the push for higher pay and an increase in minimum wage.
"Super low. It's just not enough I need some more," minimum wage earner Brianna Blake, Dayton, said.
As you can see on this map the Ohio minimum wage is $7.85. Which is 60 cents higher than the federal minimum wage.
Monrow Dixon works at McDonald's in Riverside and says his paycheck isn't cutting it..
"That $7.85 is not cutting it. I got bills and stuff to pay," Dixon explained. "We bust our behinds for the minimum wage. We should at least be getting $9 or something."
Monrow says he didn't even know the national walk-out movement was going on, as was the case with most places we reached out to.
After calling 20 various fast food restaurants in the Miami Valley, all managers we spoke with said no one at their restaurants was planning to strike.
Calls to Burger King and McDonald's media headquarters were not returned.
Similar walk outs this summer had different results. Some restaurants were unable to serve customers and others were completely unaffected.
