I've Worked at Mcdonald's for 7 Years Without a Raise. Now, the Fight for 15 Gives Me (and Workers Worldwide) Hope.
I'm 57 years old and I've worked for McDonald's for seven years, getting paid a few pennies above the federal minimum wage. For a long time, I felt like I had no choice but to accept $7.65 an hour and the daily struggles that come along with that poverty wage. But in the last year, all that has changed.
