Fast food workers are planning to launch strikes in 150 cities across the U.S. on Thursday, to demand a $15 minimum wage, the right to organize in the workplace, and an end to the wage theft that plagues the industry.
Sit-ins are also planned for more than a dozen locations, according to numerous media reports. Workers from McDonald’s to Burger King to Wendy’s to KFC are expected to be joined by thousands of home healthcare workers, as well as other supporters, with organizers saying they ultimately hope to build a movement of low-wage workers.

“On Thursday, we are prepared to take arrests to show our commitment to the growing fight for $15,” said Terrence Wise, a Burger King employee in Kansas City, Missouri, and a member of the fast-food workers’ national organizing committee, according to the New York Times.
The day of protest is being organized by coalitions, including Fast Food Forward and Fight for 15, as well as the Service Employees International Union, which has more than 2 million members.
