Southern California fast food workers Thursday staged a walkout as part of their attempt to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

The protest, the second since August, was organized by Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and designed to pressure Congress into raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25, or about $15,000 annually.

Workers say many have to work second jobs and use public assistance to make ends meet.

“It’s very hard because I don’t work that many hours because they’re being taken away from me or I am not being scheduled enough to support myself and I’m making only 15 to 20 hours a week,” Simon Rojas said.
