Why I Went to Detroit: Reflections on the Fight for $15 Movement

Anna Swauger

I've been on strike four times. Not something many people would expect from a worker living in North Carolina, but the Fight for $15 is not an ordinary movement.

For over two years now, fast food workers like myself all over the country, and even in other parts of the world, have been fighting for a decent wage of $15 an hour and union rights. $15 an hour isn't going to make any of us rich, it's just enough so that mothers like me don't have to live in poverty.
