ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Fast food workers in St. Louis, and all across the country, are walking off the job this week.

It's the latest in a series of protests that started back in May.

The group "STL Can't Survive on $7.35" is behind the local movement to raise the minimum wage to $15, unionize without consequences and improve working conditions.

Group members protested outside two St. Louis-area McDonald's locations on Monday. Doneshia Babbit was one of the protestors.

"I have three other siblings including my sister who's out here rallying with us and I have a mother who's struggling with no home to go to. So yes, I am fighting for a lot right now. My life depends on this right now. If I don't get $15 I might behomeless, too," said Babbit.

An request for comment from McDonald's was not returned.

According to the group's Facebook page, a large rally to support the workers is planned for Tuesday in Kiener Plaza.
