The organizers of smaller city walkouts at quickservice chains are calling for a national strike on Aug. 29 in an ongoing push to raise minimum hourly pay to $15 per hour. Thousands of workers in at least 35 cities have committed to the strike so far, organizers say, but some companies including Domino's are trying to turn the focus to the career paths available in the quickservice industry. "We are a company of opportunity," said Tim McIntyre, vice president of communications for Domino's, adding that 90% Domino's franchisees in the U.S. started as workers in the pizza chain's stores.
