CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Workers in some Charlotte fast-food restaurants are planning to walk off the job as part of what’s described as a 100-city strike for better pay.

Action NC says workers are expected to strike major fast-food restaurants in North Carolina’s largest city on Thursday. A statement from the group says clergy, elected officials and community supporters are expected to join the protesters.

The workers are seeking $15 an hour and the right to form a union without interference from employers.
