Fast-food and other low-wage workers in more than 60 cities—from major metropolises like New York City to smaller cities such as Missoula, Mont.—walked off the job Thursday as the fight for a living wage and the right to join a union without retaliation continues to grow. Shaniqua Davis, who works at a Bronx McDonald’s and is the mother of a two-year-old, told the New York Daily News:
I’m not going to stay quiet. I’m going to continue to fight....I’ve got a daughter to take care of. I struggle to make ends meet.
