McDonald's worker Adriana Alvarez is one of thousands of fast food workers walking off their jobs Thursday to demand better wages.

Alvarez has worked at a McDonald's in Cicero, Illinois for four years.


Protestors calling for a $15 minimum wage fill a McDonalds restaurant in Chelsea, Mass. on Dec. 4, 2014.


She earned $8.50 an hour until recently, when she got her first raise to $9.75 an hour.

She says the raise was the result of union activity at her store. The minimum hourly wage in Illinois is $8.25.
