FF15_roundup_feat.jpgIn a national day of action marked by events in some 200 cities across the country, working people from every labor sector - fast food, academia, hotels and hospitality, child care, homecare, retail and scores of others - rallied, marched, and demonstrated to make heard the growing demand heard for a fair, livable wage of $15 and hour and the right to join a union. Among them were thousands of 1199SEIU members who participated in actions uniowide.
