Fast-food workers from dozens of countries on six continents are joining the push for higher pay and worker rights by taking part in strikes and protests.
Workers in more than 30 countries are campaigning Thursday for $15 per hour pay and expressing their frustrations at work conditions.
Restaurants such as McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and KFC are being targeted. The one-day campaign continues protests launched 18 months ago. A key demand is the right to form a union without retaliation.
