NEW YORK (AP) - Organizers say thousands of fast-food workers are set to stage walkouts Thursday in dozens of cities around the country.

It's part of a nationwide campaign to get chains such as McDonald's, Taco Bell and Wendy's to pay workers higher wages.

Workers say they want $15 an hour. Many of them earn the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year.
