HARRISONBURG -- Nationwide fast food workers are striking and protesting, all for more pay.
Right now the federal minimum wage is $7.25. Fast food workers say they want $15 per hour.
According to a Mcdonald's employee here in the valley, crew workers make 25 cents more than the current minimum wage.
The president and CEO for the Harrisonburg Rockingham County Chamber of Commerce says changing the minimum wage in the valley could have some consequences.
"If it does come down from the national level, what we may see is a few hours modified. Again, I don't think you'll see a lot of turn over or businesses cutting any employees at all. They'll just modify maybe a number of folks there to increase productivity," said Frank Tamberrino, the President and CEO of Harrisonburg Chamber of Commerce.
"If you raise, if they get fifteen dollars an hour then an hamburger is going to cost three bucks...a dollar is going to cost a lot more," said Kenneth Isner, a McDonald's customer.
