Thousands of airport workers in Chicago, Boston, New York City, Newark, Philadelphia, and Fort Lauderdale are expected to strike on Wednesday night and into Thursday. The workers, mostly cabin and airport cleaners, are subcontracted by outside companies to work with various airlines, including JetBlue (JBLU), Delta (DAL) and United (UAL). They will be striking for new contracts, which include medical benefits and higher wages of $15 an hour.
