The one-day strike is the latest in a series of U.S. protests over the past 18 months that have targeted fast-food restaurant operators.
U.S. workers are demanding $15 an hour, about double the federal minimum wage.
Targeted establishments include McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and KFC.
The demonstrations build on a campaign by unions to bring attention to the plight of low-wage workers.
For its part, McDonald's - which has been one of the biggest targets - said its restaurants offered competitive pay and benefits, with opportunities for advancement.
Is this a fair wage increase, or is outrageous?
