On Thursday morning, as thousands across America were still sleepy from protesting the non-indictment of officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner, another set of protestors prepared to march for liveable wage. In solidarity with fast food workers in 189 cities all over the country, nearly a hundred people gathered outside Manhattan’s City Hall to demand that the city raise the minimum wage to $15. While some showed up with signs saying, “I can’t breathe,” a nod to Garner’s memory, the event was organized for the two-year anniversary of the Fast Food Campaign. ANIMAL spoke to several protesters about what they want the city to change. Scroll through the images above to learn about their experiences.
