Fast-food workers are holding rallies in 230 U.S. cities Wednesday in their biggest protest yet for higher pay and union rights.

The events were organized by the union-backed Fight for $15 campaign, which is demanding that McDonald’s Corp. and other fast-food chains raise their minimum wages to $15 and let workers unionize. The protests are the largest action to date for a movement begun in November 2012, organizers said.
