ATLANTA (AP) A group of fast food employees is preparing to rally in Atlanta to push for higher pay and the right to form a union.

Organizers with Atlanta Jobs With Justice say the group will join workers in cities across America Thursday to push for salaries of $15 an hour.

Demonstrators are expected to rally at a Burger King in southeast Atlanta Thursday morning and hold a march and demonstration at Cleopas R. Johnson Park at 5 p.m.

Aside from fast food employees, the event is expected to feature clergy members, politicians and other community activists.
