McDonald’s HQ shut down by thousands of workers demanding higher wages
Some 2,000 protesters marched around fast-food chain McDonald's headquarters in Chicago on Wednesday, shutting down at least one building on the corporate compound as they called for pay of $15 an hour and a union. Demonstrators were carrying banners reading, "We are worth more." About 100 protesters were arrested. The campaign for $15 an hour and a union began in late 2012 and has involved a range of tactics, including walkouts and demonstrations in cities around the country.
