Protesters gather at the Fight for $15 Rally

The Fight for $15 demonstration was part of a nation-wide effort Wednesday to win higher pay and a union for fast-food and other low-wage workers.  Organizers said demonstrations were planned for more than 230 U.S. cities.  Chicago’s protest began early Wednesday with a rally outside a South Side McDonald’s restaurant. It moved in the afternoon to the University of Illinois at Chicago campus and on to a McDonald’s near the Chicago Board of Trade.fight15-20150415_154101-web
