While the Black Friday Walmart strike grabbed media attention this month, an army of full-time organizers labored quietly to launch another historic labor action. A lead organizer claimed that "hundreds" of fast food workers across New York City were walking off the job on Thursday, in what some experts called the first multi-restaurant strike by fast food workers in the country.

"No more lies! Hold the fries!" shouted a few dozen protesters outside a Burger King near Penn Station on Thursday -- at least half of whom appeared to be organizers, as opposed to workers. "Supersize our wages," they chanted, while bundled up against a brisk New York day.
