Fast-Food Workers Call For Supersize Wages

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Fast-food workers across 50 cities are walking off their jobs Thursday in an effort to raise the minimum wage from $7.40 to $15.

With arguments like, "You can't raise a ‘shortie' only making $7.40" and "What do we want? $15! When do we want it? Now," workers are marching, just hoping their efforts will make a difference. According to fast-food employees, they need to make $15 an hour so they can pay their bills.

Workers would also like the right to form a union without interference from employers.
