From the WageAction.org web site:
BOSTON, MA – In the wake of historic victories in California and New York that will bring a $15 minimum wage to millions of Americans in these states, workers in Massachusetts will join underpaid workers across the globe for the largest-ever day of strikes and protests on April 14th.
Healthcare, transportation, education, airport, retail, fast food and human services workers will come together to demand $15/hour and union rights during a comprehensive day of action in Boston that will be highlighted by a rally outside the Massachusetts State House at 3:30 p.m. Following the rally, workers and their community allies will march to the doorsteps of McCormick & Schmick’s and McDonald’s – two of the area’s worst purveyors of poverty wages and poor working conditions.
