Los Angeles—Demonstrators outside a McDonald’s demanded higher wages earlier this month—$15 is the hourly wage fast-food workers across the country are demanding. Protests occurred in multiple American cities and internationally. Nearly a week after this protest, a demonstration at the McDonald’s headquarters in Illinois resulted in over 100 arrests. A McDonald’s representative told Reuters that while the minimum wage would, with time, improve, “$15 is unrealistic.” The median pay for fast-food workers in the U.S. is less than $9.
