Aug. 29 (Bloomberg) -- McDonald's Corp. employees in Chicago take to the streets today in an attempt to ratchet up pressure on the restaurant to raise wages.
Fast-food workers in 50 U.S. cities planned to walk off the job today. The non-union workers are demanding the right to organize and wages of $15 an hour, more than double the federal minimum wage of $7.25. U.S. Representative Janice "Jan" Schakowsky, an Illinois Democrat, speaks at the rally. (Source: Bloomberg)
