Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) rallied with McDonald’s workers striking in Nevada on Friday, where she told a crowd that workers at the franchise should be paid “livable wages.”
At a strike in Las Vegas organized by the activist group Fight for $15, the California senator marched with protesters before addressing a crowd, speaking about her own experience working as a former student.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I worked at McDonald’s. I was a student when I worked at McDonald’s,” she said. “There was not a family relying on me to pay the rent, put food on the table.”

I worked at @McDonalds when I was a student, doing french fries and ice cream. There wasn’t a family relying on me to pay the bills — but that’s the reality for too many workers today. Proud to stand with @SEIU today for livable wages and a safe working environment. pic.twitter.com/essu9q63JF
