Thousands of fast food workers across the country are striking for better wages.
The workers, from chains including McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Taco Bell want to make $15 an hour, which is about twice the average minimum wage.
The movement has mobilized on Twitter under the hashtag #iamfastfood.
Here are some photos from the strikes in New York City:
