No fast-food strike scheduled in Michigan

Posted: Updated:

Fast-food workers in Flint and Detroit were expected to strike, in an attempt to secure better wages but representatives with D15, a campaign representing workers say, no strikes are planned Monday.

Representatives with the D15 say that strikes are scheduled to take place sometime this week.

Fast-food workers have been asking for wages to be increased to $15 per hour. Most workers in the industry make just minimum wage.

The demonstrations are supposed to take place outside restaurants owned by McDonald's, Burger King, KFC and Wendy's.

The Washington Post reports the walkouts were scheduled in Flint, Detroit, New York City, Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Louis, but again, the D15 says no strikes are planned in the state of Michigan.

The strike was expected to last just one day.
