None of the Republican candidates have come out in favor of a $15 minimum wage. Hillary Clinton advocates for a national $12 minimum wage, though says she supports local efforts to raise the wage to $15.

Calling for nothing less than “fifteen bucks and a union,” Sen. Bernie Sanders joined striking workers during a rally in Washington, D.C. in November. During his speech, he credited the Fight for $15 movement with local wage victories across the country.

“What you are doing and workers all over the United States are doing, you are having a profound impact,” Sanders said. “People are raising the minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour. And you know who started it? You did. You started the movement.”

Updates on the New Hampshire protest are being shared online with the hashtag #Fightfor15.
