Workers at a fast food restaurant on Detroit's east side have walked off the job as part of an effort to push for higher wages. The walkout force the closure of 6 different fast food restaurants in the city.
Detroit pastor Charles Williams II says workers want $15 an hour, better working conditions and the right to unionize.
"Fast food and retail are the fastest growing firms and companies in the world with the lowest pay which is ridiculous," said Williams II.
The one-day protest started Friday morning at a McDonald's is one of about 50 that organizers say they've planned around Detroit.
The D15 campaign says many workers make $7.40 an hour or just above it.
"I'm not happy with the fact that I'm only making $7.40 and I don't even get 40 hours a week. I'm a married man and I have two kids. That's not enough for me to feed my family on," said Kieth Bullard who participated in Friday's protest.
Workers at more than 30 fast food restaurants in St. Louis walked off the job Thursday in a similar one-day strike.
That followed strikes at fast food chains in New York and Chicago.
Restaurants in Detroit that shut down as a result of the strike:
-1 Long John Silver's
-1 Burger King
