Some Dunkin Donuts workers walked off the job Friday complaining of no air conditioning and poor working conditions.

Striking workers protested outside the Dunkin Donuts on Lake near State Street.

They joined members of the Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago.

Among their demands is a wage increase to $15 an hour.

Dunkin Donuts says their franchisees are responsible for setting employee wages and making business decisions.
