Across the country thousands of low-wage workers are expected to walk off their jobs Thursday at fast food establishments in several U.S. cities. Workers at KFC, Wendy's, Burger King, McDonald's and other restaurants are calling for a living wage of $15 an hour and the right to form a union without retaliation. In a poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University, de Blasio is now close to the 40 percent threshold he'd need to avoid a runoff in the Democratic primary. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
