Not only are we fighting for $15 and a union – we’re fighting now for some social justice in our communities. There are people living and dying in poverty all over the world. This is one of the richest countries in the world, and it should not be happening in America. So we’re standing up.

Fight for $15 organizer and McDonald’s worker Douglas Hunter talks about the hardships of low wage, no benefit jobs, why $15 per hour and a union is a starting place and not an end goal, and how the movement is expanding to include social justice allies in an effort to confront and defeat inequality.
