I will be striking on May 15 with my coworkers on the Champs-Élysées, the most beautiful street in Paris. I have 3 children and work full time but it's very hard to raise a family on what I earn. We just buy the essentials you need to live on, and nothing else. McDonald's makes a lot of money and I can't see why the corporation can't pay me more.
