Fast food workers to go on strike Thursday

OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - There may be long lines and delays at your favorite fast food spots on Thursday, Sept. 3.

Thousands of fast food workers are now threatening nationwide walkouts, massive protests and even civil disobedience this week in their fight for higher wages.

Workers at McDonalds, Burger King and Wendy's in Opelika will participate in the protests in the Tiger Town area around 10 a.m.

It's the latest in the two-year fight to raise fast-food workers pay to at least $15 an hour.
