INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 4, 2014) – Should fast-food workers make $15 an hour?

That’s the focus of a series of protests around the nation, including Indiana. Workers gathered in front of McDonald’s at 3745 North Post Rd. on the east side of Indianapolis to make their cause known.

Workers held up signs saying “Fight for 15” and “We’re Worth More.” They want higher wages and the right to form a union.

Police cited 10 people for blocking traffic and said the protests were peaceful.

Strikes are taking place in 150 cities. Organizers said the strikes include workers at McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC. Arrests have been made in Detroit and New York as part of the demonstrations.
