Tonight, I'll conclude this series by embedding the clip about organizing fast food workers and showing how it's played out locally through Occupy Detroit. Stay tuned.Sorry, I got sidetracked, as I instead posted Overnight News Digest: Fast Fill-in Edition on Daily Kos last night. Instead, I'm following through this morning.

Robert Reich says striking low-wage workers need collective action and bargaining, but our other panelists are skeptical of union power.That reminds me of what I wrote in Occupy Detroit and others campaign against petcoke.
Occupy Detroit has continued to do good work, including documenting the fast-food workers strike last month. I'll be sure to cover that in a future entry.This is that "future entry." Watch 5-10-13 Detroit's fast food workers strike for a living wage.
Good Jobs Now, Michigan United and SEIU came out in support of fast food workers across the Detroit area as they went on strike, demanding $15/hr. to bring them out of poverty and give the economy a much needed shot in the arm.I'll have more about the coverage of the fast food workers striking later. Right now, it's time for me to go to work.
