U.S. workers rally in first 'Fight for $15' protest since Trump win

Workers from fast-food chains and nearly 20 airports joined nationwide protests for higher pay, union rights and immigration reform on Tuesday in their first major action since businessman Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election.

McDonald’s Corp restaurants in 340 cities are prime rally targets.

In New York City, more than 200 protesters held a pre-dawn rally outside of a McDonald’s restaurant, where they chanted slogans calling for a minimum wage of $15 (USD) an hour.

Home health and child care providers and some drivers for ride service Uber Technologies Inc joined the action, which is backed by the Service Employees International Union.
