Fast food workers across New York City voted Wednesday night to authorize a strike.

It's part of an on-going campaign to boost hourly wages to $15 an hour.

Fast food workers also want the right to form a union.

Hundreds of workers from McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell and other fast food chains are now prepared to walk off the job if their demands are not met.
