Moral Monday Leader Not Arrested With 26 Fast Food Workers In Durham

Shocker. Moral Monday’s leader not arrested at the protest he promoted? Or maybe he was? No names were released.

“Twenty-six protesters were arrested in Durham, NC Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014 as the Bull City joined over 150 cities nationwide as part of a campaign called “Fight for $15.” Labor organizers are trying to escalate efforts to get McDonald’s, Burger King and other fast-food companies to pay employees at least $15 an hour. The protesters blocked Main Street in Durham for several hours before being arrested.”

More:

“The North Carolina AFL-CIO and the “Raise Up” Fast Food Worker Association said about 200 fast food workers across the state walked off the job Thursday.   

In a statement, McDonald’s Corporation said they had no reported service interruptions because of the walk-outs.  The company says local franchisees set wages for their workers.”
