Fast food might be slow today in some cities

Some fast-food workers in seven cities, including Kansas City, are walking off the job today to protest low wages. The workers want to get paid $15 per hour, but industry officials say that the restaurants don’t have a high enough profit margin to afford that. Meanwhile, McDonald’s is getting grief for providing budgeting advice to its workers that included them working two jobs to get by (and assumed they needed to spend only $20 a month on health insurance).
