Fast food workers across New York City are on strike, demanding better pay and the right to unionize.

The are railing against what they say are “abusive labor practices,” and demand a pay increase from $7.25 to $15.

From the Grio:

It’s noisy, it’s really hot, fast, they rush you. Sometimes you don’t even get breaks. All for $7.25? It’s crazy,” said Nathalia Sepulveda, who works at a McDonald’s opposite Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, where one protest took place.

Chicago School Board President Says Classes Will Resume on Monday

According to WBEZ, an end to the Chicago Teacher’s Union strike may be in sight.

School Board President David Vitale says the district and teachers have agreed on a “framework” that will allow classes to begin once again this Monday.

Of course, nothing is set in stone.

From WBEZ:

“Vitale would not say where each side compromised, and he stressed that union delegates still must vote to end the strike.

He said the agreement gives children the time they need in the classroom and teachers the respect they deserve.
