From New York to California, fast-food workers around the country are protesting Thursday, demanding a living wage.
Here in Chicago workers say the City Council's vote to increase the minimum wage to $13/hour by 2019 isn't enough to support their families.
They're demanding a minimum wage of $15/hour now.
The protesters include fast food workers, busboys, retail clerks, gas station attendants and maids.
Business owners say minimum-wage jobs were never meant to become lifetime careers; and they warn that without dramatically higher revenues, the higher minimum wage will force them to cut jobs.
