The Global Strike for Fast Food Workers is happening across the country and around the world today (Thursday). The protest is a call for higher pay and worker rights for the estimated four million employees in the fast food industry. One of the events is in Eugene.
It’s lunchtime business as usual at the McDonald’s on Broadway in Eugene….
But outside on the sidewalk, a handful of activists are protesting the corporate fast food giant. They want to see a “living wage” for its employees.
