Tomorrow just might be the perfect day to start that post-Thanksgiving diet, considering your fast-food options will be limited. That's right, workers are planning to walk off the job, which means no Mac Snack Wraps, Frostys, or Triple Whoppers for you tomorrow.

But before workers ditch their deep fryers, MoveOn.org members today plan to protest at McDonald's locations in five cities, including Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, where they'll deliver a petition asking the fast food lords to pay their employees more money.
Dubbed "Low Pay is Not Okay," the petition, which is addressed to McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Domino's, Papa John's, and Subway, calls for $15 in hourly wages. Right now, they're taking home $8 an hour.
Some 50,000 people have signed onto the petition, supporting the fast food workers of America.More »
