Summary: Do you want to make a difference working for economic and social justice? The Fight for 15 demands a $15 living wage and the right to form a union without retaliation.

The Fight for $15 Campaign has become one of the largest and most momentous organizing campaigns for low wage workers across the country. As part of a global movement, thousands of fast food workers are standing up for “$15 and union rights.” For the past several years, fast food workers from McDonald's and other fast food corporations have been fighting to have their voices heard. The Fight for $15 has been extremely successful as thousands of fast food workers across the country have mass mobilized and fought back against the $200 billion industry.

SEIU National Fast Food Workers Union (NFFWU) is working to expand the movement and deepen the successful fights to raise employment standards and unite workers in organizing their union in the fast food industry through national, state and community campaigns.

SEIU NFFWU is affiliated with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which has more than 2 million members in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. NFFWU is united with those 2.2 million members in a shared belief in the dignity of workers and the value of their work, and in a commitment to a more just and humane society.
