At a rally of fast food workers in North Carolina, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) compared the efforts of those who want to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour to the civil rights activists who paved the way for Martin Luther King Jr.

“There are brave people who are out in front. Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t start by himself, and there were people out there 50 years before him breaking down the barriers. Great labor leaders were doing this a hundred years ago,” Sanders said at the April 26 rally for Raise Up For 15 in Charlotte.
