McJobs CEO Interrupted by Fight for $15 Activists


“Fight for $15” minimum wage protesters interrupted a speech by McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton for several minutes on Friday, leading protestors to be escorted out of the event and threatened with arrest.

Stratton was the keynote speaker at the Union League Club’s First Friday luncheon.

Several female protestors interrupted Stratton soon after the speech began, asking how they could feed their children on their McDonald’s salaries. In Illinois, the minimum wage is $8.25 an hour.
