Fast food giant McDonald’s was forced to close part of its headquarters in Chicago on Wednesday of last week.

Low paid fast food workers staged a protest to demand a $15 an hour living wage. 

Some 2,000 took part in the demonstration.

It was the biggest protest that the firm has faced. 

As well as demanding a pay rise workers are also calling for the right to unionise.
