    Shitheads who think flipping burgers should be a good career want $15 an hour, double the national minimum wage. Typical entitlement attitude nurtured by liberals.

    If they think anybody is paying ten bucks for a whopper they're high. Buncha econ majors in that strike, I'm sure.

    If you're struggling to live off of your current wage how is going on strike and losing a day's pay a good idea?

    Yes because Unions worked so well in Detroit.

    Just another group of crooks trying to exploit the American worker.

    if the minimum wage had changed in relation to what the top 1% wages have increased in the last ten years, it would be $22.50 per hour.


    power to the people.

    Yup, the media keeps the middle class focused on the lower mid and poor....But don't look at corporate welfare/wall st bailouts, etc.......

    But your food costs will rise at the Grocery store also which indeed will affect you. Unless you are a millionaire?

    would you pay another dollar or two per hamburger to reward those who work, with a decent salary? Especially considering that the can just give up and get the same amount they're making on the welfare tit?

    Fast food places should only be worked at as a stepping stone bettering your life. Now people want to make a career out of it and Unionize it. :facepalm:

    How much more can this country take before collapsing?

    Really amazes me that, it's considered a liberal idea to reward workers with decent wages...that should be an ideal held by fiscal conservatives.
