AUDIO SOUND BITE: Fast Food Workers Pay and Missouri’s Economy

So far, some fast food workers in Missouri have walked off the job twice to protest their minimum wage pay.

Organizers of those protests say more are coming, and they want at least fifteen dollars an hour for the restaurant employees. Missouri Jobs With Justice activist, Reverend Martin (mar-teen) Rafanan says that may sound like too much for an entry-level job, but he thinks it would be good for the economy.
