The call for “$15 and a union” went up again across the United States on
May 15, with a new — and bigger — group of allies.

As striking fast food workers hit picket lines across the US to demand a
US$15 minimum wage and the right to organise, fast food workers and
supporters rallied in 30 other counties. Italian fast food workers also
went on strike on May 16.
