Workers and labor rights activists in Chicago took aim at some of the city’s biggest retail and fast food employers Wednesday in a series of demonstrations calling for higher pay.

Headed by the Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago and supported by various local unions and labor groups, the “Fight for 15” campaign prompted employee walkouts at McDonald’s, Macy’s, Victoria's Secret outlets and other chain stores and restaurants starting at 5:30 a.m. yesterday.
