In Los Angeles, about 50 sign-toting protesters gathered in front of a McDonald’s restaurant near the University of Southern California campus. Many said they are employees, at this store or another McDonald’s.

Sam Quintero, 23, of Los Angeles, a worker there, spoke to the crowd from a stake-bed truck parked in front. He says he was joined by about 20 co-workers to protest wages that are so low, “we barely make it.”
