JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Fast-food workers will go on strike for the first time in Jackson as a part of a growing movement for $15 an hour and union rights.

Workers from McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, KFC, Domino's and other fast-food restaurant locations in the metro area will go on strike on Thursday, December 4 starting at 7:30 am in the Walgreens parking lot on Northbrook Drive.

The goal of $15 an hour has become a reality in SeaTac and Seattle. Just last month, San Francisco became the third city in the U.S. to adopt a $15 minimum wage.

Others industries, like home care and airport workers, are also becoming inspired by the movement.
