Many fast food workers in Michigan make $7.40 an hour or just above it, Williams said.

That’s the amount Claudette Wilson told The Detroit News she earns while taking part in the walkout at a Burger King near Detroit’s northern city limits.

“(It’s) the same as when I started working in the fast food industry three years ago,” said Wilson, 20. “We’re the fastest-growing job market in the country with the lowest pay.”

Shavontae Jackson said she has trouble making ends meet. The 22-year-old Southfield resident works at a McDonald’s.
