Employees at a Jimmy John’s franchise in St. Louis’ Soulard neighborhood staged a walk-out today.
The workers are seeking $15 an hour, rather than the $7.35 minimum they currently make.
In a statement, workers also complained of being publicly disciplined for trivial incidents and forced to wear signs.
Shamniqua Clark says it was the right decision for her to take part in the walk-out.
