Workers picket McDonald’s in Northglenn

NORTHGLENN — Some Coloradans are joining fast-food workers across the country in calling for higher wages.

About 50 people picketed outside a McDonald’s in the Denver suburb of Northglenn for about an hour on Thursday morning as part of protests in over 50 cities.

Nationally, workers say they want $15 an hour, which would be about $31,000 a year for full-time employees. That’s more than double the federal minimum wage, which many fast food workers make, of $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year. The minimum wage in Colorado is $7.78 an hour because it’s one of eight states that link it to inflation.

There have been similar protests organized by unions and community groups over the past several months.
