Protest hits NYC Wendy’s

wendys_0220A lunchtime protest in downtown Manhattan, N.Y., offered a strong show of support for former Wendy’s worker Rynetta Bennett, who was fired for being an organizer of the campaign for $15-an-hour wages and a union.

The Jan. 31 protest against Wendy’s was organized by 99 Pickets and Fight for 15. Participants chanted “Get up! Get down! There’s a revolution in this town!” while stopping customers from entering the store.

The Rude Mechanical Orchestra provided loud solidarity in front of the restaurant for Bennett and the fight for a liveable wage.
