Fast Food Workers Organize Nationwide Walkout

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 29: Public Advocate and mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio speaks in Union Square in support of demonstrating fast food workers on August 29, 2013 in New York City. 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)
