Skip to comments.Fast Food Strike: Workers Walk Out In US Cities
Posted on 07/29/2013 6:34:45 AM PDT by kevcol
Staff at well known chains including McDonald's, Burger King, KFC and Wendy's were due to walk out on Monday in New York, Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, St Louis, Kansas City and Flint, Michigan.
They are calling on fast food restaurants to pay $15 per hour, which compares to the New York state average pay of $8.25 per hour and the minimum wage of $7.25.
The action is being organised by Fast Food Forward, a movement of employees from fast food outlets in New York City aimed at raising wages and increasing workers' rights

"I'm a Man" with no skills who wants to make more money like I have skills.
Any bets on the employees at Chick-fil-A?
I don’t eat at fast “food” restaurants anyway.
Or In N Out.
Fire them all!
I'm sure there's a line of college graduates who would be glad for the job .....
Sorry, any middle aged “man” who is still working at a fast food restaurant as anything but a manager or owner isn’t a man. He certainly isn’t providing for his family or paying for his way.
No, you are a parasitic infection.
Boo-effing-hoo. Enjoy your lives in NY, Chicago, St Louis, etc.
Headline: Customers staying away from fast food restaurants after price rise.
Just look at what cities aare involved. heavily unionized and for the most part in extreme financial trouble. Wonder what they would do if all those fast food places just closed their doors and left those cities?
guess I won’t be spending any money there, hmmmmmmmmm maybe Panera today, better yet, Chick Filet
“I dont eat at fast food restaurants anyway”
Yep, McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC and Wendy’s. Can’t remember the last time I walked into any of those. I prefer Chic-fil-a, Zaxbys and Five guys burgers anyway.
I used to avoid Panera because the local frnachise was so obviously staffed by libtards, they could not keep their politics out of serving customers.
But then I heard the Panera owner and founder was a good christian and supporter of conservative causes
I think I will write him a letter asking if he would approve of this behavior
I propose that everyone avoid fast food places altogether. Brown bag a healthy lunch and solve two problems at the same time. Have healthier food and eliminate those low paying jobs!
Sounds to me like a lot of job openings coming soon in New York, Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, St Louis, Kansas City and Flint, Michigan.
Invader and other cheap foreign labor create too much supply for minimum wage jobs. Besides that, these places used to get their cheap labor from part time students and moms, now they have people who are surviving off their wages. The solution isn’t $15 an hour, but it also isn’t the situation we have now.
