The holidays are a time when consumer spending is at its peak, which also makes it one of the best times for protestors to make their voices heard. Across the country, many groups have set their sights on an increased minimum wage. Under the banner of #FightFor15 (@FightFor15), various workers groups, from retail to airlines to fast food, have made their voices heard.
The movement came together around a national “Day of Disruption” on Nov. 29, during which workers across the country made their voices heard in a variety of demonstrations. Here are some of the most inspiring actions that took place that day and other notable protests that took place this holiday season.
