CHARLOTTE — Workers in some Charlotte fast-food restaurants walked off the job Thursday as part of what’s described as a 100-city strike for better pay.

Action NC says workers struck major fast-food restaurants in North Carolina’s largest city Thursday. A statement from the group says clergy, elected officials and community supporters joined the protesters.

The workers are seeking $15 an hour and the right to form a union without interference from employers.
