Some Western New Yorkers took Tax Day as an opportunity to highlight another economic issue: underpaid workers.
A march at Main and Bailey on Wednesday was one of dozens across the country calling for a $15 minimum wage.
Many of the marchers were fast-food employees who walked off the job saying companies need to pay people enough so that they can be above the poverty line.
They say a clear sign of the issue is McDonalds' announcement earlier this month that it would raise wages a dollar, for a small fraction of its workers."We want something more than just a pat on the back, you know? Because we're making you like a thousand dollars an hour and we're only getting eight," said Kahlil Chambers at Wednesday's rally. "It's kinda like wow, you know? It's not nothing, a couple more dollars. It won't affect them, but it will affect us a lot."
