Fast food workers coordinate protests over 'wage theft'
Protests were planned for around 30 US cities.
Labor organizers said demonstrations were planned for around 30 US cities on Tuesday in protest of so-called 'wage theft', which includes practices like charging employees for uniforms or asking employees to clock out and then clean up. Lawsuits were filed in three states last week accusing McDonald's of the illegal wage practices. The protests are part of an ongoing campaign by fast food workers and labor organizers to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.
