Fast Food Worker Protests


Fast-food worker Michelle Osborn, 23, of Flint shouts out chants as she and a few dozen others strike outside of McDonald's on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 in Flint. Some fast food restaurant workers have walked off the job in the Detroit area as part of an effort to push for higher wages. Organizers say they began the walkout at restaurants in Lincoln Park and Southfield on Tuesday night. Workers in Flint hit the street Wednesday outside a McDonald's, saying they want wages "super-sized." Workers want $15 and hour, better working conditions and the right to unionize. The restaurant industry says higher wages would hurt job creation. The actions follow strikes this week in other parts of the country. (AP Photo/The Flint Journal, Jake May)
