Philadelphia fast food workers are set to join the national fight for better wages.
The inaugural action takes place at this McDonald's at Broad and Girard at 3:30 this afternoon. Lawsuits, in states including California and New York accused restaurant of robbing employees by not paying them overtime, and taking hours off of their time cards.
Now hundreds of workers are joining the movement seeking to raise the minimum wage to 15-dollars an hour and the right to form a union.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
