Organizers of the fast-food protests for higher pay on Tuesday shifted their attention to another issue: "wage theft."

Protesters planned to rally outside McDonald's restaurants in cities including Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami to call attention to the denial of overtime pay and other violations they say deprive workers of the money they're owed.

McDonald's Corp. said in a statement that its restaurants remain open "today — and every day — thanks to the teams of dedicated employees serving our customers.""
