On Wednesday 15th April, fast food and other low-paid workers in the USA will be taking part in what could be the biggest day of strikes, occupations and protests in their fight for a $15/hr minimum wage.

In Britain, the Youth Fight for Jobs campaign is working with the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers’ Union (BFAWU) in the Fast Food Rights coalition to organise solidarity protests up and down the country. Wednesday’s protests will be part of a ‘Join a Union Day’. We’re encouraging unorganised workers to get organised, so we can reverse the tide of low pay and casual work.

We are campaigning to:

  • Raise the minimum wage to £10/hr for all, with no youth exemptions

  • Scrap zero-hour contracts
