Low-Wage Workers of the World United in Fight for Living Wage
Earlier this month, in what started as protests by fast-food workers in the United States demanding a $15/hr minimum wage, an united front was taken up by thousands of employees from around the world. Many of the protests took place in front of McDonald’s, but the professions of the people protesting ranged from professors to garment workers to health-care providers.

Here are some of the people who are being heard loud and clear.
