Ordinarily Americans view a strike as workers demanding higher pay or better benefits. This Thursday, Americans will see a different kind of strike at fast food restaurants around the country, planned not by restaurant employees, but by paid political activists organized by the Service Employees International Union.

Chick fil a should offer free coffee on that day. :)
If they don’t give a date how can we schedule our BUYcot?
Raise their wage to $15/hr from the current federal minimum wage of $7.25/hr...not a bad idea. So it follows that raising their wage to $100/hr must be a great idea! Of course, everyone knows that the minimum wage mostly affects young, unskilled, often minority workers. So, when the minimum wage is increased, the manager is forced to lay off the youngest, least skilled, often minority worker.
Unions don't give a crap about workers. They are in it for their own interest and the reason union membership is falling is because workers have finally seen the light.
These idiots are either too stupid to see the consequences of this action or the unions are trying to get fastfood workers into unions. Sure that makes a lot of sense in an industry that is unskilled and has major turnovers every few months. Or maybe they are trying to drive the price of fast food up to further cause a death spiral of the economy acting under orders given by BHO...
I haven’t been to a fast-food restaurant in months - but if I see picket signs outside of one during my travels Thursday - I’m Going In!

McDonalds got rich off a 15 cent hamburger.
Their food is no longer cheap, their food is no longer fast, their food is no longer fit to eat.
And the Big Mac is half the diameter it was when it was 15 cents. Today it’s almost a slider. Compare the diameter to a Whataburger (in the southern US), which has stubbornly and proudly refused to reduce the size of its basic menu since the early 1960s.
The way this generally plays out is that the employees end up getting a 25 cent an hour raise and end up giving 50 cents an hour back in union dues.
I always laugh at the picture that accompany the sandwich on the Menu.
You see meat hanging out of the bread.
It’s funny, when you buy one you need a microscope to find the meat, and when you find it , it is thin enough to read the menu through.
It’s probably good though because when I do eat one within half an hour I have to find a toilet, In fact I have bought the Big Mac instead of taking an ex-lax , and it works every time. Works much better than prunes.
