Across the country, many fast-food workers are tired of their low wages and want more pay and better benefits. To get their voices heard, and hopefully spark some change with a $15-an-hour salary, Los Angeles' fast-food workers will picket on Thursday, Aug. 29.

This strike is not confined to Los Angeles or even California, however; it is part of a nationwide agenda. Many cities have experienced restaurant employees walking out during these last few weeks. For example, workers have picketed McDonald's, KFC and Taco Bell. McDonald's (and possibly other fast food restaurants?) will be targeted at next week's strike.
