PITTSTON TWP. — “We can’t survive on $7.25.”
That was the message that about a dozen union labor supporters at McDonalds in Pittston Township wanted to relay on Thursday. They marched outside of the fast food restaurant’s doors, carrying signs and chanting as customers entered the store and drive-thru.
The protest was one of many taking place in cities across the country. Fast food workers and supporters across the country are calling for a $15 per hour wage for fast food jobs, as well as the right to form unions without retaliation.
The crowd of protestors was eventually asked to leave by the Pittston Township Police Department.
