Tuesday, December 3, 2013 | It's on – this Thursday, fast food workers like me are going on strike across the country.
And it's going to be bigger than ever before, with community members joining us at protests and rallies in hundreds of cities across the country!

The outpouring of support we've seen so far has been amazing, but we're only getting started. As we get ready to walk off our jobs again we need you to have our backs.
