In late November, fast food workers from McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Bell and KFC protested around New York City. They demanded $15 an hour in pay - a step up from the minimum wage many employees currently earn - and the right to form a union. In a statement, Burger King said its restaurants have "provided an entry point into the workforce for millions of Americans" and that they "offer compensation and benefits that are consistent with the [quick service] industry."
