U.S. Fast-Food Workers Walk Out in Hundreds of Cities

New York, November 10 (RHC)-- Fast-food workers in the United States say they are walking off the job in a record 270 cities today in what organizers call the largest action of its kind to date.

One year ahead of the 2016 presidential elections, the workers are ramping up their call for a $15-an-hour minimum wage and union rights. Protests by low-wage workers, including home care aides and child care workers, are expected in 500 U.S. cities today.
