As fast-food workers battle for a $15-an-hour wage, they're getting ready to strike this week—and get arrested if they have to. McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's employees are among those planning a protest on Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reports, and the effort will include broad civil disobedience, the New York Times adds.

"I'm really struggling trying to make ends meet," one McDonald's worker tells the paper. "I'm prepared to do whatever it takes to get McDonald's to the table to discuss increasing my pay to $15 an hour."
