(Undated) -- Fast-food workers in 100 cities across the U.S. are planning to walk off the job today as they continue to push for a 15-dollar-an-hour wage. Many fast-food workers are making the minimum wage of 7.25 an hour which translates to about 15-thousand dollars a year. The scheduled walkout would come a day after President Obama pushed for a higher federal minimum wage during a speech in Washington. There are over 57-thousand fast-food workers in New York City, which is one of the cities where a one-day walkout is scheduled.
