Oak Brook Police Commander Jeff Weber gives protesters a warning of arrest if they walk on the McDonald's property. Hundreds of protesters flooded the streets near the McDonald’s Corp. headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill. Wednesday, May 21, 2014, railing about low wages and seeking $15 per hour for the rank and file. The Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago’s Fight for 15 said in a statement that restaurant workers have held strikes and protests six times in the last 1 1/2 years challenging the company’s median wage of $8.94. The Wednesday protest is a preview of what the group said it plans for Thursday’s annual stockholder’s meeting. The company closed one of its five buildings in anticipation of the protests.(AP Photo / Daily Herald, Bev Horne)
