    UNDATED (KTHV) - On Thursday across the country, fast food workers will go on strike.

    This follows protests earlier this year demanding minimum wage be raised to $15 an hour.

    Meanwhile, the industry says they've seen job growth.

    In response to the strikes, the National Restaurant Association said, "Dramatic increases in a starting wage such as those called for in these rallies will challenge that job growth history, increase prices for restaurant meals, especially in the value segments, and lead to fewer jobs created."
    But workers disagree.
