About 250 members of the fast-food workforce, labor unions, the faith, justice and legal communities rallied Thursday afternoon in Kansas City to call attention to pay problems in the $200 billion fast-food industry.
Protesting in front of a McDonald's restaurant at Meyer Boulevard and Troost Avenue, the group paraded in the latest in a series of events staged by the StandUpKC coalition.
They called for higher pay, the right to join unions, and an end to "wage theft" -- allegations that employers alter time records to avoid paying overtime and in other ways pay workers less than what was legally owed. (April 3, 2014 Video by Diane Stafford | The Kansas City Star)
