NYC fast food workers walk off the job, seek to unionize

This unionization attempt is being reported as the biggest ever in the industry

If you go to a fast food restaurant in New York City today, there might not be anyone there to take your order. Many fast food workers in the Big Apple walked off the job today in protest of low wages and what they perceived as retaliation against employees who have supported a massive unionization campaign.

The effort has employed 40 full-time organizers to recruit people at Wendy’s, Taco Bell, McDonalds and other restaurants in what experts say is the biggest unionization attempt by fast-food workers in U.S. history, according to the New York Times.
