MINNEAPOLIS

Joined by Mayor Betsy Hodges, fast food workers and supporters briefly occupied a Burger King restaurant in Minneapolis Thursday as part of the nationwide movement for a $15-an-hour minimum wage.

Earlier in the day, striking fast food workers demonstrated at a Minneapolis McDonald’s. They were joined by home health care workers, Walmart employees, retail janitors and others who began demonstrating on Black Friday for higher living standards.

“I'm part of a growing movement fighting for $15 and the right to organize a union without retaliation,” said fast food worker Guillermo Lindsey. “I work hard and deserve a living wage so I can take care of my family and afford a stable place to live. I'm fighting to live, not just to survive.”

Hodges praised the efforts of the demonstrators.

The mayor they claimed was gang signing awhile ago. I can see why they didn't like her.
