Some Indianapolis fast food workers are walking off their jobs today as part of a national movement to hit the $200 billion industry. 

Listen:

Fran Quigley, professor at the IU McKinney School of Law says the protest at a McDonald's in downtown Indy is the first in a series.  Today's rallies are inspired by strikes that took place earlier this summer in seven cities. 

The workers are calling for $15 an hour wages and the right to form a union without retaliation or unfair labor practices. The current minimum wage in Indiana is $7.25.
