Thousands of fast food workers are striking today in 58 cities across America.
The workers from chains like McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's are seeking to make $15 an hour. They say their current wages aren't enough to live on.
Organizers claim today's strike is the largest of its kind.
The strikers efforts are chronicled on Twitter with the hashtag #fightfor15. We'll be updating all day.
Here are some snapshots of strikers from across the country:
