Fast food restaurant employees plan to walk off the job
Workers at fast food restaurants across the country, including right here in Little Rock, are expected to walk off their jobs Thursday to call for a minimum wage of $15 an hour.
The campaign actually began two years ago. Organizers say the $15 an hour minimum is needed because fast-food workers aren't just teenagers looking for pocket change anymore. They say they're mothers and fathers struggling to raise children on wages that are too low.
