The Fight for $15 & a Union
by CARL FINAMORE

The Fight for $15 minimum wage campaign came to San Francisco in the 
very early hours of April 15.

Around 100 protestors assembled at 6am and then marched very orderly 
through the doors, packed the dining area and shut down for one hour the 
McDonalds in the heart of the city’s Latino Mission district, an area 
which itself is a focal point of the city’s gentrification and 
displacement of working class residents.

Speakers spoke inside with bullhorns, something that would have been 
unthinkable only a few years ago when arrests would have been certain. 
The political climate has dramatically changed in a very short time.
