CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

A fight for better pay.

Fast food workers in Cleveland, and at least 100 other cities, are taking part in a major protest over wages. But some warn that more money may mean fewer jobs.

Demonstrators rallied outside of a Memphis Avenue McDonald’s in Cleveland, calling for higher wagers.

Workers nationwide want a big raise – $15 dollars an hour, more than twice the national minimum wage of $7.25. Fast food employees claim they cannot survive on their current pay.

The National Restaurant Association says most fast food workers are happy and labor unions are staging these demonstrations.
