Fast Food Workers #FightFor15 & Strike Today Nationwide

Strike Fast Food

Burger King workers in Tucson went on strike in early September 2014. It was part of a 150-city nationwide action organized by SEIU.

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has organized another fast food strike today, December 4 in Tucson and around the country.

This is the third nationwide fast food strike in a year, with one in December 2013 and one in September 2014.

Protesters, strikers, and supporters will meet around 12:30 at Casa Maria,  401 E 26th St. in Tucson.

You can also watch what is going on nationwide on Twitter by following the tags #SEIU, #StrikeFastFood, and #FightFor15 and watching for Tweets below on this page.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela J. Powers

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals–not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election.

My platform focused on economic reforms to grow Arizona’s economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, grow local small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs.

In the Arizona House, I was a strong voice for fiscal responsibility a moratorium on corporate tax breaks until the schools were fully funded, increased cash assistance to the poor, expansion of maternal healthcare benefits, equal rights, choice, unions, education at all levels and protecting our water supply.

After three terms, I retired from the Arizona Legislature in January 2023 but will continue to blog and produce my podcast “A View from the Left Side.”
