On December 7 at noon, Fight for $15, an organization representing low-wage workers in Detroit, held a brief strike against McDonald’s to continue to press for a Federal minimum wage of $15 per hour.  A car caravan was organized with the participation of McDonald’s workers and their supporters. More than three dozen vehicles filled the parking lot and drive-thru lanes, shutting down lunchtime sales for over an hour.  With the election of Joe Biden as President, the union stated:

“We showed up to the polls to vote for leaders who will stand up for workers and now it’s time for them to follow through. We want this new administration to commit to raising the minimum wage to $15/hr in the first 100 days.”
