McDonald’s under-wraps.

On Thursday, April 14th, the employees of McDonald’s held a peaceful strike at the downtown Chicago location on Clark Ave.

McDonald’s employees all across the states decided to protest on this day in order to get their voices heard. A recent decision, from the board of McDonald’s, states that there will be a rise in the wages, but only for SOME employees. Disturbed by this thought, the employees of these establishments took it to themselves to voice their feelings on the thought. It was a peaceful protest and no violence had taken place. There hopes for this protest is to get the establishment to realize that everyone deserves equal pay and that they all need to be getting paid more.
