23 May 2014 Last updated at 00:31 BST

US fast food workers have joined colleagues in countries including Indonesia, France, and Brazil to stage a global walk-out in protest at wages and working conditions.

McDonald's workers are demanding a "liveable" wage of $15 (£9) per hour in the US. Currently, McDonald's employees make $8 per hour.
