Fast Food Workers Strike

If you're craving a Big Mac, you might have a long wait to get your hands on those all-beef patties.

Fast-food workers at McDonald's, Wendy's, KFC and Burger King have planned a one-day walkout Thursday in seven major cities: New York, Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, Flint (Mich.), St. Louis and Kansas City (Mo.).

Workers say they want $15 an hour, which would be about $31,000 a year for full-time employees. That's more than double the federal minimum wage, which many fast food workers make, of $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year.

"I'm not really concerned about losing my job," planned striker and McD's worker Robert Wilson Jr. said. "If I don't do anything, I am in a lose-lose situation. I can still get fired at any time."
