Good for the uneducated and unskilled workers.

If the labor portion of the costs to run a fast food establishment are increased 66%, which will happen quicker?

1.) Prices will double for your Big Mac.
2.) Jobs will vanish as employers automate further.

Here's an idea: Want a better job and more pay? Improve your skill level.

Chicago fast food, retail workers strike today

Workers walk out at some McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts, Macy's in push for higher wages, union

Tribune staff report
2:59 p.m. CDT, April 24, 2013

Standing with a group of protestors in front of the Nordstrom Rack on State Street Wednesday morning, Charde Nabors, 21, said she's fighting for better pay and more opportunities for workers like her.

Nabors works at Sears for $9 an hour to support her two children, ages 2 and 5 months. Nabors says she only works about 20 hours a week, though she has asked for a full-time position.

She has to supplement her income with food stamps, but she's struggling to pay $650 a month for the apartment she moved into after staying with family and living in a hotel.

Nabors is among the hundreds of fast food and retail workers in Chicago that community organizers expect to walk off the job Wednesday in a campaign to push for higher wages.

The Fight for $15 campaign, named for its goal of securing $15 an hour for workers, said it expects McDonald's, Subway, Dunkin' Donuts, Macy's, Sears and Victoria's Secret store in the Loop and Magnificent Mile to be affected.

The rolling strikes began at 5:30 a.m. as workers walked off the job at some McDonald's restaurants and Dunkin' Donuts. A rally is planned for 4 p.m. at the St. James Cathedral near Huron and Rush Streets.

"Food stamps help but they don't pay the rent," the protesting Nabors said, acknowledging the difficulty of searching for work and take public assistance for her and her kids.

Now THAT is funny. I post a commentary on the uneducated and unskilled workers.

Who comments other than Topix's own uneducated and unskilled? I should have known. That is a topic near and dear to a specific losers heart.

The mantra of the Moocher Class:

"We wants a job where we don't need no skilz but makes $15 na hour for just showing up."

That would be the unofficial, low information, no integrity, self anointed spell check, grammar, syntax and comma empress of Topix.
