Skip to comments.SEIU Man: If McDonald’s Strikers Don’t Get What They Want, They May Contaminate the Food
Posted on 07/31/2013 5:27:08 PM PDT by ColdOne
So I guess going to a New York McDonalds isnt a good idea right now.
Videographer and conservative blogger Adam Sharp of SharpElbows.net attended one such demonstration and interviewed an SEIU member, easily identifiable as such by his purple shirt.
When asked whether the union member supported the $15 per hour wage increase the McDonalds workers were demanding, he admitted, Im not sure.
He also said he was there to show his support for the workers rather than the company and expressed a fear that, if theyre [the McDonalds employees] pissed off, they could be doing something to that food.
So thats your main concern, is that if they dont get what they want, they might contaminate the food?
The SEIU member shrugged his shoulders and said, I dont know.
Video at the link.
Im not one who hates on McDonalds. You go there, you get what you want at a reasonable price and the product is consistent from coast to coast. Overseas, McDonalds

I haven’t been there in years. No time to go back now.
That should constitute a real threat
typical...and if people don’t show up at McD’s they don’t have a job...oh well, morons
Oh goody. A terrorist.
Shoot on sight.
You can bet I won’t be doing any business at a joint where they have knuckledragging SEIU employees around.
maybe they can get a job making Twinkies...*sarc*
I have only eaten at fast food places less than 5 times in the last 30 years with one exception. A few months ago my Niece and her family stopped by with Pizza she had bought at Pizza Hut.
I used to not like their pizza but it has improved dramatically. The reason I no longer eat at McD’s Hardees etc. is seeing the people in back. Just don’t want to eat anything prepared by people I don’t trust. I probably should not trust Pizza Hut either.
Its McDonalds..they should threaten to actually cook the meat
I consider SEIU to be a criminal organization.
Then they MAY go to jail.
Poshitus is loving this. Now he’s pitted ‘his’ people against ‘our’ employers.
No prob. For me, anyway, I can cook.
Chick Fil A is A+.
The food is very, very good, the restaurant and restrooms are always extremely clean, the employees are spot on with politeness and efficiency and the food is always freshly prepared.
And the founder is a Christian who closes all stores on Sunday so the employees can worship and spend time with their families.
SEIU? Eric Holder won’t be any help here.
Hire high school and college kids. My son’s friends haven’t been able to find jobs, and they are hungry for work!
Gee, how is that different from any other day of the week? Why? Because they're always ticked off, ticked off at others because they never hit the books.
How do you contaminate anything from McDonalds...slip in some grass fed beef?
They obviously have been doing this,
.... and it has been ignored.
They are just planning a ‘ramp up’
following probable DO”J”- and DNC-green lights.
Based on that interview every single employee on strike should be immediately terminated..... That legal cost will pale in comparison to lost sales and the dozen lawsuits claiming customers food was contaminated....
I wish there was a Chick-Fil-A around here but there is not.
In-n-Out is also good. Their employees speak English. Everything is clean. Food is fresh.
It’s also a Christian company.
someone needs to be hauled up short...and given the opportunity to lie to a Federal law enforcement officer...
.... SCOOTER LIBBY ALERT...
Had Chik-fil-a today for lunch.
Haven’t eaten at any other fast food place in decades.
If I worked at McDonalds I’d be very concerned. The SEIU thugs are not above poisoning people and blaming it on the McDonald workers.
Sounds like extortion to me. Historically, there's only one proven way to effectively deal with extortionists. If you give them what they want, they just come back waning more.
Something about killing the golden goose???
As long as CEOs get contracts that will protect them from being fired, every underling underpaid schmuck should have the same right to exactly the same protection. That should not negotiable IMHO.
I’ve never understood why CEOs get contractual protection when they run the company. If they run it into the ground they should get nothing. If they run it effectively they won’t be fired and they will be retained.
I do not understand why incompetent grossly overpaid CEOs are protected from being fired at will, while underpaid underlings are fired at will. Until the playing field is level I will frankly support the same right to workers.
anyone that does that would be fired and charged with assault for poisoning the food
you flip burgers. I did it. many people have, as its not difficult at all.
it’s not supposed to be a career.
you get paid so little as the supply of potential employees is VERY high as it’s not difficult and the manufacturing jobs have been shoved offshore... resulting in more people competing for that job
what to make more money? here’s the secret: learn a sought after skill that has some difficulty to master. this will put you in a smaller category of potential employees... radically increasing the offered wage
RICO, send them to jail.
never feed the beasts, you are correct
they’ll start hanging around the front door yammering and begging all the time...
Yep. SEIU and other unions have contaminated the world for years. What is next?
The age of consent in Mexico is 13..... The poor guy had too many beers after church and forgot where he was.../ S
When illegal Mexicans cross the border.... They also bring Mexican culture with them...
Sorry wrong thread... Duh...
I must agree and add this:
I’m 34 weeks pregnant with #3, and I snuck out a couple of days ago to do some back-to-school and baby shopping. I splurged on Chick Fil A. Not only did my order get filled promptly, as I was struggling out of the booth to throw away my trash the manager rushed over. He not only helped me up, but he also took my tray and disposed of the trash for me.
It’s not that big of a deal in the whole grand scheme of things, but it meant a lot to me. We’re not fast food eaters, we try to eat homemade whole foods, but Chick Fil A is our one splurge. I can support what they do even if it is only a few times a year!
Typical Obama voters.
These mensa candidates are going to be competing with this beast.
The good and bad news, bad first:
Due to safety concerns brought up by the unions, all minimum wage employees must be fired.
McDonalds is hiring.
Pizza Hut quietly got better when Dominos upped their game. Pizza Hutt retained the improvements. Dominos? Not so much...
When they got rid of the fries cooked in beef-fat, that did it for me.
Fire ‘em. Hire new ones. Problem solved.
Domino’s was really good at one point.
I’ve been told...nothing factual to base this on...that minority fast-food workers, if they can tell the order is for a white, will say, ‘This is for Trayvon’, and spit into the food.
Never worked in a fast-food joint and so don’t know if it is even possible to correlate an order with a customer, but why not spread a little hate and dissension?
The vast majority of the ones “on strike” do not work there. They did this at the Wal-Marts too a little while back.
I have not eaten there in years only. Their profits are down, way down. Fast food used to be cheap and relatively edible. I ate at a Burger King 3 years ago, it was expensive and horrible. Now they are demanding $20 an hour wages?! Good luck with that!
i’m the exact opposite. i have STOPPED eating pizza hut because several years ago they did away with their cheese blend and went to plain mozarella only, and because that wasnt bad enough a couple years ago they changed their pizza sauce. it is sour now. YUK!
so now i won’t touch it. i have the recipe for their pan dough and their cheese blend, so now if i want pizza i make my own.
there is a little family run place in my hometown that i will get pizza from when i go to visit my mom, otherwise i do NOT buy pizza from a any restaurant.
And then sales go down and they lose their jobs. Smart. No wonder they’re flipping burgers.
Where we are the mcd’s are run by a franchise group that insists on good workers, neat appearance, and a tight ship. I know some of the people who work their and frankly, the owners are lucky at all the good employees. And they are known as good employers. Nothing to worry about at these McDs
When I was a kid we used to eat at local places and regional chains... like Grandy’s, Pizza Inn, Crystal’s Pizza (Biggest Pizza Palace in Texas), Ted’s Donuts, Barrel O’ Chicken etc etc
When owners of Ted’s and Barrel O Chicken sold and retired the places really went downhill fast. I haven’t eaten at any of these places in at least a decade.
Yep, sounds about right for this type of organization...UNIONS....Then cry when their jobs are eliminated because of cost and their towns look like battle fields aftermaths.
