Fast food workers in Denver are participating in a national strike to win $15 an hour wages.
Workers from McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and other fast food restaurants plan to walk off their jobs as part of the strike on Thursday.
About 100 people picketed a McDonald's on the city's west side in the morning. They walked around the store and also inside holding signs and using buckets as drums. There weren't any reports of any arrests.
Another demonstration is planned at a McDonald's near the state Capitol around noon.
Organizers have promised to engage in civil disobedience to draw attention to their cause. Several protesters have been arrested in some of the other 150 cities where workers are demonstrating.
