(Chicago, IL)  --  Chicago fast food and retail workers are staging a walkout today to demand better pay.  Workers from 30 downtown fast food eateries and retail outlets have joined forces for their "Fight for 15" campaign.  The workers are pushing for a minimum hourly wage of at least 15-dollars for low-skilled employees working downtown.  They also want union representation.  The protest is taking place along Michigan Avenue and State Street.
