The events are intended to publicize the employees’ demand for a $15-an-hour wage. The median pay nationwide for fast-food restaurant workers is $8.69 an hour.

Organized by a group called Fast Food Forward, the walk-outs are expected to hit only two or three restaurants in each city, all of them big name brands like McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC.
