Protesters arrested in pay fight at McDonald’s HQ

Hundreds of protesters flooded the streets Wednesday, May 2014, near the McDonald’s Corp. headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill. railing about low wages and seeking $15 per hour for the rank and file. The Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago’s Fight for 15 said in a statement that restaurant workers have held strikes and protests six times in the last 1 1/2 years challenging the company’s median wage of $8.94. The Wednesday protest is a preview of what the group said it plans for Thursday’s annual stockholder’s meeting. The company closed one of its five buildings in anticipation of the protests. AP

Protesters were arrested after refusing to leave corporate property outside McDonald’s headquarters on Wednesday, as hundreds demonstrated to call attention to the low pay earned by fast-food workers.
