Fast food workers strike, but where's the coverage?

The Nation is reporting today “Beginning at 10:30 PM Pacific Time Wednesday, workers at dozens of Seattle fast food locations plan to strike, launching the nation’s seventh work stoppage by fast food employees in eight weeks. Organizers expect workers from chains including McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, Subway, Arby’s, Chipotle, Qdoba, and Jack in the Box to participate in the walkout, which will last roughly twenty-four hours…..”

But it’s not being covered online by the Seattle Times,  the Seattle P-I or The Stranger, at least not on the front page.
