Fast food workers in Southern California who took part in a nationwide strike demanding better wages and union rights protested inside a South LA McDonald’s restaurant Thursday and conducted a sit-down in downtown Los Angeles streets.

Local McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s workers were among those who walked off their jobs to call for $15 an hour wages and the right to form a union.


Fast food workers in more than 150 cities were expected to take part in the one-day strike Thursday. Local workers gathered at a McDonald’s on the 1000 block of west Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in South LA at 5 a.m. to begin the strike.
