Creepy Ronald McDonalds Are Popping Up Around The World And They’re Demanding Money

Ba da ba ba ba…

Fast-food workers went on strike worldwide Thursday, walking off the job for one day to picket outside their restaurants and demand higher wages.


In the United States, workers demanded $15 a hour for their labor, as well as the right to unionize. Several major fast food chains were targeted, including McDonald’s, Wendy’s, KFC, and Burger King. Activists claim there were protests in 150 cities in the United States, as well as 80 cities internationally.

But in some cases, things got weird.
