A group of Miami fast food workers staged a rap protest asking for higher wages. Some actors played the role of fast food workers asking for more money while others played the role of Burger King and Ronald McDonald telling the workers they are not responsible to pay them significantly more.

Fast food workers around the nation want more money. They want to see a pay increase from $7.25 to $15 an hour.

"I think is terrible that we are not making more money. I have worked at a fast food restaurant for about one year and I still make only a little more than minimum wage. It is just not fair," said Antonio Rodriguez.

"I realized that many of these workers want more money but I don't think companies should be forced to overpay them," said John Hartley, a restaurant operator.

Across the nation, a growing number of fast food workers have been demonstrating for a higher minimum wage. Many are asking for $15 an hour.
