CHICAGO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Hundreds of workers will hitting the picket line Wednesday in Chicago.
They will be picketing in front of dozens of fast food restaurants and retail stores demanding higher wages.
It's called the Fight for 15, because they want at least 15-dollars an hour.
The strike is inspired by the one-day walkout of 400-employees earlier this year in New York.
Organizers say there are 275,000 men and women working in fast food and retail in Chicago that don't make enough to cover basic necessities like food, clothing and rent.
