On April 15, 2015, Fight For $15, an organization working to raise the U.S. minimum wage, held their largest protest in the history of the movement. Rallies took place in 200 cities nationwide and 40 countries around the world. Protests for a higher minimum wage have started to pay off in many states. During the last two years, the minimum wages in Seattle, Oakland, CA, and Chicago have increased significantly.
