it all boils down to obeying authority. if they would have moved to the sidewalk, which common sense deems is safer, than none of this would have happened.

Actually, I was wrong in my previous comment: "A consular officer cannot: demand the immediate release of a U.S. citizen arrested abroad or otherwise cause the citizen to be released; represent a U.S. citizen at trial, give legal advice, or pay legal fees and/or fines with U.S. Government funds."

Protesters target McDonald's headquarters in pay fight

3 months ago from Chicago Tribune

From from Chicago Tribune:

Hundreds of low-wage McDonald's workers protested near the fast-food chain's headquarters on Wednesday calling for a significant pay hike, and several dozen were peacefully arrested. 

McDonald's workers are calling for roughly a doubling of pay to $15 per hour and the right to form a union that would bargain over benefits and wages on their behalf.

Those marked with yellow arm bands came prepared to be arrested and about two dozen were led by police to a bus.

About 500 to 600 people clogged the entrance, with some singing “We shall not be moved” as police warned them they could be arrested if they did not move back. Police led protestors away from the front one by one.

The latest, and possibly largest, protest against the global chain comes a day before McDonald’s Thursday annual meeting, where shareholders will weigh in on the company's executive compensation. Chief Executive Don Thompson took home total compensation of $9.5 million in 2013.

Fast food workers in Chicago make about $8.25 per hour, the state’s minimum wage. Many are part-time workers without benefits and don’t have a set schedule.

Company officials could not be reached for comment.
