ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) -
Hundreds of protesters marched around McDonald's suburban Chicago headquarters Wednesday, causing the shutdown of at least one building on the campus as they called for pay of $15 an hour and a union a day before a shareholders meeting.
About 100 protesters were arrested for criminal trespass as they temporarily blocked two streets around the McDonald's campus.
The company closed a restaurant because of traffic concerns, and told employees in a building targeted by protesters they should work from home, said McDonald's spokeswoman Heidi Barker Sa Shekhem.
