Today, in the latest escalation by minimum paid restaurant workers who demand greater wages, Fast-food workers and labor organizers are set to turn out in support of higher wages in cities across the country Thursday. AP reports that walkouts are planned in 100 cities, with rallies set for another 100 cities. While it’s not clear what the actual turnout will be, how many of the participants are workers and what impact they’ll have on restaurant operations, it is possible that your 99 cent lunch may be delayed or outright cancelled today.

Earlier this week, restaurant chain Applebees unveiled what may soon be the “Waiter Terminator.”
