Fast-food workers strike, seeking $15 wage, political muscle
In Boston, Kheila Cox, 38, a $10-an-hour baggage handler at Logan Airport, plans to join a march this afternoon from Faneuil Hall to the Massachusetts State House.
"It's not just the financial piece, it's also about the dignity," says Cox, who has seven children.
I'm here to fight for $15 and a union," said Lakecha Jackson, 37, a Detroit mother of two young daughters who earns $8 an hour and has been working at the McDonald's where she and other demonstrators gathered. "That would be a lot for me."
