Fast food workers in seven cities across the country are walking out of work Monday to demand a $15 per hour minimum wage they say is needed for a livable standard. Employees from fast food chains including McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's will walk out in Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago, New York and other cities. “I believe that changing the wage from $7.40 to $15 will provide a better living circumstance for workers that are living in poverty,” said Claudette Wilson, a member of a Detroit group that advocates for higher wages for quickservice workers.
