CHICAGO (CBS) — Protesters marched on fast-food restaurants on the west and south sides, and in the Loop, staging a Tax Day protest demanding an increase in the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
The protesters first marched on a restaurant at 8321 S. Ashland Av., which closed briefly while demonstrators rallied outside.
“We need a living wage. We’re really just asking for a living wage, so that we can be able to provide for our families, just like everyone else,” said Donald Jenkins, who makes $8.30 an hour working for McDonald’s.
