      Poll: Fast Food Workers Wages

      Poll: Fast Food Workers Wages

      Workers at a fast food restaurant on Detroit's east side have walked off the job as part of an effort to push for higher wages.

      Detroit pastor Charles Williams II says workers want $15 and hour, better working conditions and the right to unionize. The one-day protest starting Friday morning at a McDonald's is one of about 50 that organizers say they've planned around Detroit.

      The D15 campaign says many workers make $7.40 an hour or just above it.

      A message seeking comment from a representative of the restaurant was left Friday morning by The Associated Press.

      Workers at more than 30 fast food restaurants in St. Louis walked off the job Thursday in a similar one-day strike. That followed strikes at fast food chains in New York and Chicago.

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Do you believe workers at fast food restaurants should make more than minimum wage? Yes or no? Why or why not?
