ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Workers at fast-food restaurants including McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and Krystal are planning a strike at several locations throughout Atlanta Thursday.

Atlanta is just one of the 150 cities nationwide taking part in the global protests and strikes.

They will be at three locations in Atlanta:

  • 265 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE at 6 a.m.
  • 445 Moreland Ave. SE at 10:15 a.m.
