so the single digit iq crowd wants 15.00 an hour for lowering a basket into a fryer, push a button, remove basket when timer beeps, empty basket. best way to get replaced by automation. I bet fast food starts getting as much automation they can and kick these tards to the curb.

You're ignorant. They will use automation whether they pay them 7 or 15 an hour. You sound like a republican retard.

I think the striking employees should all be fired! Wouldn't we all like to have a $7.75 pay raise? Get real people. There are a lot of people in the non-fast food jobs making way less than $15.00 an hour. If they do get a raise then they strike because too many taxes are being taken out. They are just being totally ridiculous. Maybe they should ask for a $2.25 raise instead of what they are asking for. If minimum wage is $15.00 an hour, I guarantee a cheeseburger will cost $10.00 and fries will cost $5.00. If they want $15.00 an hour then they need to go to school and better themselves. Fast food isn't meant to be a career.

The inherent error in Communist Democrat thought is they compare fast food jobs to government jobs. They set up bureaucracies in which people get paid huge sums for doing next to nothing, then compare the rather energetic jobs in fast foods to those government slackers. Like other Liberal guilt they carry, they then support further fouling of work standards, pay scales and inflation rates to temporarily feel better about the government jobs they hold doing next to nothing. It's a vicious circle, because inflation sets in, the doper government people forget about their guilt and demand more money for doing next to nothing. Then, they feel guilty about the incredible chasm between their pay for doing next to nothing and the pay for people doing fairly energetic work in private industry. Meanwhile, every time the pay scales go up, inflation sets in and people pay 100% more for food like they are now compared to what food cost at the last minimum wage increase.

These jobs started out as jobs for highschoolers and college students .They were never meant to be the "careers" of all these people. Indiana not having enough vocational and production training schools is respondsible for this dilemma. If these are illegal immigrants, they should be happy they have a job.

Sarkozy,Obama have destroyed the 200 billion dollar Libyan President and all you can talk about is 4 people dead in Benghazi

found any WMD's-Bush/Cheyney/Powell/Rums feld were reponsible for 5000 dead

Paulson gives 1.7 trillion to Wall St Banks that created a the biggest recession since WW1

Prez Obama is way ahead of Bush/Cheyney who inherited a surplus econonmy
