GREENSBORO, N.C. — Before you head out the door to work today, you may want to pack your lunch.
Fast-food workers in cities across the country, including Greensboro, are planning to go on strike.
They are fighting for a pay raise to $15 an hour.
Workers are expected to strike at Greensboro’s major fast-food restaurants, including McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC.
Clergy and community supporters, will join fast-food workers on the strike lines.
The strike is expected to take place at 4805 W. Market St., Greensboro, starting at 8:45 a.m.
Striking Greensboro workers will then travel to Durham to join striking fast-food workers from across North Carolina for an action with Reverend Barber, President of the NC NAACP.
Organizers of the movement say fast food companies think every employee is a teenager who is only working for spending money. But, they claim the reality is much different now as many employees are supporting families on those wages.
