Restaurant employee strikes expected in 100 cities this week
A year after Fast Food Forward held its first employee strike, workers in 100 cities are planning to walk off their jobs Dec. 5. The initial strike took place in New York City, with about 200 restaurant employees asking for higher wages.

Employees are planning to participate in cities such as Boston, Chicago, Denver, Hartford, Conn., Houston, Los Angeles, Memphis, Tenn., New York, Oakland, Calif., Raleigh, N.C., Tampa, Fla., and more.
