The crowd called for a raise of the minimum wage and unionization, and encouraged low-wage workers to strike by sharing the labor rights law requirements for striking.


“Thousands will be out in Chicago’s streets today demanding dignity. Demanding a union. Demanding justice,” the organization posted.

Fight for 15 was present all over the country, with rallies in more than 400 cities according to Twitter.
