Workers at some fast food restaurants in the New York City area walked off the job on Thursday. A large group gathered outside a McDonald's on Madison and 40th St. in Manhattan demanding higher wages and the approval of a workers union.
"They're giving us $7.25 an hour, so many of my co-workers are living on food stamps. You can't live on that in this city," a protester told Good Day NY.

Some franchise owners have said they'd have to hire fewer workers if the increase is approved. According to The New York Times, McDonald's said in a statement that it values its employees and remains committed to them.
