On my way home class this week, I noticed a large gathering of people shouting and holding up signs, apparently protesting against something, so I decided to check it out. “Lucha por 15”, their shirts and banners read, “Fight for 15”. This is referring to raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. As I walked by I heard someone say, “This reminds me of the work MLK did!” Whether I agree or disagree with this person’s statement, or the movement in general, I could not help but relate the protest to the civil rights movement as well. Seeing hundreds of people united for a cause did in fact mirror several movements that we have studied in class including the civil rights movement, women’s rights movement, and the anti-war campaign. Seeing people unified such as this reminded me how powerful a group of people can be when they put their heads together and fight for a cause.
