Local home care workers, nursing home workers, library staff, school district employees, fast food workers, and child care workers throughout Cleveland protested outside of City Hall on Tuesday, joining minimum wage workers in 500 cities nationwide to demand that elected leaders stand up for $15/hour and union rights.

Called “Fight for $15,” this is thelargest strike to ever hit America’s fast food industry, with walkouts planned in a record 270 cities.
