Labor Groups Support Fast-Food Workers Call for Increased Wages


Organized labor groups say they support fast food workers who picketed outside restaurants in Springfield, and around the country, Thursday to demand a higher minimum wage.

 

The head of the Springfield and Central Illinois Trades and Labor Council says the current federal wage is not sufficient for workers who are trying to support a family.

 

Terry Reed says boosting that wage from the current $7.25 to $15 an hour would likely only add pennies to the cost of a fast-food burger… but would make a huge difference for workers and their families, and the economy as a whole.
