Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare is set to stage a lunchtime rally in front of fast-food giant McDonald’s Toronto headquarters as part of a global mass mobilization day to support the growing movement for a $15 minimum wage in the United States.
“What started in 2014 as a grass-roots initiative to raise awareness for low-wage fast food workers in the US has grown into an international rally across over 300 cities in over 40 countries,” Sharleen Stewart, president of SEIU Healthcare, said in a statement.
“We’re here to stand for working people so that everyone can earn a fair living. It starts by setting the example for others and that’s what we want this multi-billion dollar company to do.”
SEIU Healthcare represents more than 55,000 healthcare and community service workers across Ontario, with a “strong track record” of improving wages, benefits and working conditions for those workers.
“We’re standing with our sisters and brothers across North America and around the world who share our belief that all workers deserve a living wage,” Stewart said.
