“We need to show McDonald’s that we’re serious and that we’re not backing down,” Jessica Davis, a 25-year-old McDonald’s crew trainer who joined the protests Wednesday, told Reuters. Davis said she earns $8.98 an hour.
The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour, which adds up to about $15,000 a year assuming a 40-hour workweek.
