Fast-food workers conducted a nationwide strike Thursday in more than 100 cities, demanding their wages be raised to $15 an hour. According to reports, more than  700 workers and their supporters were arrested for their participation in the protests.

The UC Berkeley Labor Center reports that fast-food workers in America require nearly $7 billion in public assistance a year because they are so poorly paid.
