Fast-food workers strike in Peoria
“Any more money would be great, because $8.25 you can’t live off that, $8.25 is two gallons of milk if you look at it. There are a lot of mother’s out here struggling and there are fathers out here to, but we can’t move up in life off change,” Hill says.
Fast-food workers from 100-cities nationwide also participated in the walk-outs. This follows a series of strikes that began last November in New York City, then spread to other cities over the summer.
