’Twas the season to fight for higher pay.

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.

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.
