Fast-food workers throughout Oakland are walking off the job and joining in on a worldwide campaign Thursday to ask for higher pay and the right to form a union.
A woman was arrested for allegedly stabbing an employee at a Jack in the Box in Pleasanton early Sunday morning, police said.
A man wearing a trash bag on Thursday robbed cash registers and a patron at a Jack-in-the-Box restaurant at gunpoint in Salinas and then fled on a bicycle down Main Street.
It appears Jack In The Box and other fast food restaurants were among the retailers who received meat that originated at a Petaluma meat company that was shut down last month after the USDA said the slaughterhouse processed diseased and unhealthy animals and skirted inspection rules.
Workers walked off the job Thursday at about 30 East Bay fast-food restaurants from Richmond to Fremont as part of a national movement aimed at boosting their pay and benefits.
Authorities said a masked man wielding a semi-automatic pistol forced the employees of an East Bay Jack in the Box into a refrigerator before robbing the restaurant.
A man was arrested early Saturday morning after allegedly robbing a Jack In The Box restaurant and holding employees hostage at knifepoint.
