DENVER (CBS4) – Fast food workers protested Thursday in 100 cities across the country, including in Denver.

The workers are asking for a higher minimum wage saying they are working for pay that’s below the living level.

Several dozen workers protested outside the McDonald’s at East Colfax Avenue and Kipling Road.

It’s the second time workers have staged an across-the-country strike. They are asking for a $15 an hour minimum wage.

The Restaurant Association says only five percent of fast food workers are paid minimum wage and 75 percent in that group are part-time employees.
