Fast food workers in New York demand better pay
In late November, fast food workers from McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Bell and KFC protested around New York City. They demanded $15 an hour in pay - a step up from the minimum wage many employees currently earn - and the right to form a union. In a statement, Burger King said its restaurants have "provided an entry point into the workforce for millions of Americans" and that they "offer compensation and benefits that are consistent with the [quick service] industry."
