More than 100 fast food workers and their supporters were arrested in at least eight cities across the United States on Thursday in a mass act of nonviolent civil disobedience. The workers, who hail from fast food companies including McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Jack in the Box, Popeyes and Bojangles, walked off their jobs and took to the streets as part of a nationwide fast food strike held in more than 150 cities. The movement, which is backed financially by the Service Employees International Union and others, comes at a time when the wage gap between the poor and the rich has become a hot political issue.
