Protesters demand increase in minimum wage

APR. 14, 12:55 P.M. – In a show of solidarity, fast-food workers along with health-care and child-care providers from the Richmond area protested outside a local McDonald’s restaurant Apr. 14 demanding a wage increase.

The group stood united with other low-wage workers across the country today for the “Fight for $15” initiative. The campaign, which organizers call “the biggest-ever day of strikes,” has gained momentum recently as more than a dozen state and local governments approved legislation that will pay fast-food workers $15 per hour.

“This is an effort to ensure that anyone who works full-time doesn’t have to raise a family in poverty,” said Anna Scholl, executive director of ProgressVA, a nonprofit advocacy group for low-income Virginians.
