Fast food workers in Miami are joining a national and world-wide walk out as they push for higher wages.

Organizers say the protesters will gather outside a McDonalds at the corner of Northwest 17th Street and Northwest 9th Avenue.

The workers are seeking to have their wages raised to $15 per hour, and want the right to form a union without retaliation.

Strikes are expected in 150 cities across the United States and another 33 countries across the globe.
