A group of more than 100 workers from Bloomin' Brands -- the corporate parent of Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba's Italian Grill and others -- will be dropping in on the company's Tampa headquarters during a convention event held there Monday afternoon, according to a release from the group.

A group of lobbyists, delegates and politicians in town for the convention will be at the company headquarters for a tasting and tour of the corporation, which has been owned by Bain since 2007, according to the release.

The workers are protesting Bloomin' Brands' efforts to reduce the state minimum wage by 54 percent in Florida and Arizona. They will attempt to deliver a letter to executives.
