Efforts to unionize fast-food workers ramp up this week with organized protests in the works at McDonald's (MCD -0.3%), Taco Bell (YUM +1%), and Wendy's (WEN -0.4%). Though the activity is catching some headlines, unionization efforts seem more likely to fizzle than generate higher costs for restaurant operators. If the Black Friday protests at Wal-Mart are any indication, it may be business as normal despite all the sound and fury.
