Video of a verbal confrontation between a McDonald's employee and McDonald's USA President Jeff Stratton has surfaced nearly a week after a group of restaurant workers protested low wages during a speech Stratton made at a Chicago dining club.

The footage, which appears to have been recorded on a camera phone, was featured in a segment on TheRealNews.com and shows McDonald's employee Nancy Salgado shaming a surprised Stratton.

"I'm a single mother of two. It's really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day," Salgado is seen saying in the video. "Do you think this is fair that I have to be making $8.25 when I've been working at McDonald's for 10 years?"

Shortly afterwards, a man who appears to be a security guard tells Salgado she's "going to be arrested."

Salgado and six other members of Fight for $15, a protest group calling for higher wages for fast food workers, were kicked out of the event, according to the Chicago Tribune, even though they had purchased tickets. The incident occurred just a few weeks after fast food workers organized strikes around the country demanding wage increases.

Salgado, who said she ultimately received only a citation, told TheRealNews.com afterwards that her children are what inspired her to speak out.

"He needs to know...what all the employees at McDonald's are going through," she said. "We're struggling day to day to provide our needs."
