Fast-food, retail strikes planned Thursday in Tampa

TAMPA, Fla (TBO.com)- Getting a Big Mac for dinner or buying a shirt at the mall on Thursday may mean crossing picket lines of chanting workers.

Tampa is one of 50 U.S. cities where labor organizers plan strikes on Thursday among fast-food and retail workers, calling for at least $15 in hourly pay, plus the right to form unions — part of a growing nationwide trend of worker protests that began in cities such as New York and Chicago.

Companies targeted in past strikes include McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC, plus retail stores such as Macy’s, Sears, Victoria’s Secret and Walgreens.
