Oaklandside: McDonald’s workers rally for better pay and safety in Fruitvale

Fast food workers gathered in the parking lot of a McDonald’s on E. 12th Street in Fruitvale Tuesday to protest what they say are unfair wages and poor working conditions.

Employees from the restaurant—nearly all of whom are Hispanic women—along with workers from other fast food chains with locations in Oakland and the East Bay, utilized a flatbed truck as a makeshift platform to speak from, sharing their stories of working through the COVID-19 pandemic.
