Hundreds Gather Outside McDonald’s Headquarters in Illinois


Protesters were back at the headquarters of one of the world’s largest fast food chains pushing for a higher minimum wage.

Hundreds demonstrated in front of the McDonald’s headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois Thursday. They are part of a larger movement seeking $15 an hour for minimum wage across the country.

The second day of protests coincided with the fast food chain’s annual shareholders meeting. The company shut down its headquarters Wednesday and Thursday due to the disruptions.

McDonald’s released a statement saying it raised wages for all employees at company-owned restaurants in July to one dollar above the local minimum wage.
