Food workers at Smithsonian strike over wages
Friday - 7/12/2013, 8:53am EDT
Organizers say the workers plan to protest Thursday outside the National Air and Space Museum and march to the Smithsonian Castle.
The workers are employed by McDonald's Corp. and Restaurant Associates, which operate museum restaurants on the National Mall. Organizers say the strike includes restaurant workers from the National Museum of American History and the space museum.
This is the latest in a string of protests by service workers at federal buildings.
Workers are submitting a letter to Smithsonian Secretary Wayne Clough calling for higher wages and paid holidays that other workers receive. They cite the Smithsonian's $30 million in profits from business units.
