Caroline Durocher, a fast- food server at a Taco Bell restaurant in Seattle, Washington, joined co-workers in walking off the job in late May 2013, thus shutting down the restaurant. Seattle became at least the seventh U.S. city facing strikes by fast-food workers. Durocher made $9.19 per hour and worked about 27 hours per week. She had been working on an associate of arts degree and had hopes of becoming a psychologist, but economic difficulties forced her to leave school.
