Fast-Food Workers Pitch Occupation Outside McDonald's Headquarters

Chicago, May 26 (RHC)-- In the United States, thousands of fast-food workers have pitched tents and set up an occupation outside McDonald’s headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, to demand a $15-an-hour minimum wage and union rights.

The occupation comes as McDonald’s hosts its annual shareholder meeting on Thursday.  The massive protests shut down McDonald’s headquarters yesterday and more more protests are planned.

The protest takes place as former McDonald’s CEO Ed Rensi has claimed in an interview with Fox Business that McDonald’s would replace workers with robots if the national minimum wage is raised to $15 an hour.
