Why Workers Walked Out Monday in a Mass Strike for Black Lives

Their demands of corporate leaders include racial justice, healthcare and a $15 minimum wage

On Monday, a massive nationwide workers strike took place in 160 cities, without regard to a specific industry or company. The Strike for Black Lives, initially organized by Movement for Black Lives but in partnership with over four dozen other groups, was a demand for accountability from corporate leadership on the part of a country struggling through a pandemic and a social justice crisis.
