CLEVELAND, Ohio — Several area workers are expected to protest outside of Cleveland City Hall this morning to push for an increase to $15 an hour for the minimum wage rate in Ohio.
According to a release from SEIU 1199, home care workers, nursing home workers, library staff, school district employees, fast food workers and child care workers throughout Cleveland will attend.
The protest will come the same day fast-food cooks and cashiers nationwide join the largest-ever strike to hit America’s fast-food industry– one year from Election Day – with walkouts planned for a record 270 cities.
The event in Cleveland will include Cleveland City Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, community and clergy allies.
The march is set to begin at 11:30 a.m. at Cleveland City Hall, 601 Lakeside Ave., Cleveland.
