As a college student, Kamala Harris worked at McDonald’s.

On Friday afternoon, she visited a Las Vegas location of her former workplace to push for a $15 minimum wage – all while campaigning for a new job: President of the United States.

“I did the french fries and I did the ice cream,” said the Democratic senator from California, surrounded by workers of the fast-food franchise as they rallied around the country demanding higher pay and the right to a union. “There was not a family relying on me to pay the rent, put food on table, and keep the bills paid by the end of the month – but the reality of McDonald’s is that a majority of the folks who are working there today are relying on that income to sustain a household and a family.”
