Fast-food workers and other protest participants chanted and marched through a Los Angeles McDonald’s restaurant Thursday morning as part of a nationwide strike involving industry employees in about 100 cities.
The workers walked off the job Thursday as part of the largest effort yet in a push for higher pay for fast-food restaurant employees. The actions are intended to build on a campaign that began about a year ago to call attention to the difficulties of living on the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, or about $15,000 a year.
