Protesters gathered for a second day near McDonald’s corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, on May 22 to demand a pay increase as an annual shareholders meeting was held. According to local reports, hundreds of demonstrators took part in the previous day’s protest, and several dozen people were arrested.

The group is looking for a raise to $15 per hour, which is nearly double the base salary currently offered to employees of the fast-food giant. This footage shows images from the May 22 demonstration. Credit: AJ Buhay
