NORTHGLENN, Colo. (AP) Some Colorado fast-food workers are participating in a national protest calling for higher wages.

Workers were picketing a McDonald's in Northglenn on Thursday.

Organizers expect the protests to be the largest nationwide strike by fast-food workers.

Nationally, workers say they want $15 an hour, which would be about $31,000 a year for full-time employees. That's more than double the federal minimum wage, which many fast food workers make, of $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year. The minimum wage in Colorado is $7.78 an hour because it's one of eight states that link it to inflation.
