Share

Today on Radioactivity, Rob Lorei speaks with Taco Bell fast food worker Shetara Brown from Tampa. Shetara is involved in an effort calling on fast food companies to pay a higher minimum wage.

Fast-food workers in St. Pete will for the first time join workers in Tampa on strike this Thursday, joining a growing movement for $15 an hour and union rights that has spread to over 160 cities across the country. Two years after New York City fast-food workers sparked a nationwide movement for higher pay and rights on the job, the Fight for $15 continues to grow and gain momentum.
