Dear Commons Community,
Hundreds of protesters descended on McDonald’s headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, this past week to demand the right to unionize and a $15 minimum wage. Out of the protests came both arrests — 138 for trespassing — and images of marchers clashing with nightstick-wielding police officers dressed in riot gear. Here are some of the most powerful images compiled by The Huffington Post. Definitely worth a look.
We wish these workers success in their protest and demand for a decent wage.
