Fast-food workers hold strike in Monterey Park as part of fight to unionize

MONTEREY PARK (KABC) -- Fast-food workers in Los Angeles and across the country took to the streets Thursday in their fight to unionize.

The one-day strike and March took place at noon in Monterey Park. The event was organized by Fight for $15 L.A., a group that's been battling for a $15 minimum wage.

Workers at McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and other fast-food chains say they want to unionize.

Fast-food workers are hoping to drum up support among voters ahead of the November mid-term elections, so they'll elect candidates who support their cause.

The march kicked off at Belvedere Park and ended at a McDonald's location in the 900 block of W. Floral Drive.
