As minimum wage ticks up, Orlando fast-food workers strike for $15 an hour now

"The minimum wage across the state of Florida is now $10 an hour.

It’s the first step in raising the minimum wage to $15 by 2026, a move some fast-food workers in Orlando say isn’t happening quickly enough.

And some workers are striking for that reason today.


The non-partisan Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added] estimates 646,000 Floridians are getting an immediate pay bump. They’ll be earning $100 more a month."
