I minimum wage and the average hourly wage had went up at same rate as he top 20% wages went up over last 30 years minimum wage would be $15 an hour and average hourly wage would be $30 an hour.

either one must come up or one must come down.

you don't think the skills needed to get those top 20% paying jobs didn't increase by that much in the last thirty years?
it still takes the same talent to ask if you want fries with that...

it's been a while, cancer sux...why the name change?

Entry level jobs are suppose to motivate you to improve yourself, education level and work ethics so you can find your career. Do you want to spend the rest of your life working behind the counter at McDonalds? Is your ambition only worth $11.50 an hour? You need to think about that, real hard!

.........You don't recognize sarcasm to well if you are actually serious about this post of yours. If you think $11.50 is that big a step up, you must still live with your parents.

Then of course after 11.50 they will demand higher,then higher,then higher.This bullsh## walk out today is exactly why unions need to be abolished.Thug tactics,redistribution blah,blah,blah.Improving ones stand in life should be their priority.The mindset should be, this is a steppimg stone but instead they think this is it!You must work for what you want.If you don't like your current wage then do something to make more.

If this happens, boner's teahadist house will be voting on increasing their per diem to cover it. boner's teahadist house already has 219 days off scheduled for '14. They'll give their increase priority.

I've spent some time in Knoxville. Was that you goose-stepping back and forth in front of Nazi headquarters?

Communists are so stupid! Every time they increase the minimum wage, the core industries raise their prices to accommodate the theft. The unfairness of such wages can't be exaggerated. Those employees actually doing the work and filling in for the slackers, although proving their excellence and succeeding in wage increases because of their excellence, end up suffering because the businesses can't afford a commensurate wage increase for them. They end up getting the same, or close to the same wage as those getting paid to be slackers and calling in sick all the time. The country continues to suffer with increased inflation, capable people decide it isn't worth putting out the extra effort and the malaise of Communism fouls and rots the roots of a successful nation more and more.

Contrary to what you have been brainwashed to believe, kids make up a small minority of fast food workers. Approximately 80% are people who have to support families. No one in america should have to work a full time job and still not earn enough to feed their kids. I won't even dignify your dopey education comment with a reply.
When it comes to developing some human compassion, you are the underacheiver, Alan.

Glad you asked. For one thing, even an entry level job should pay enough so one doesn't require food stamps. Anyone who works full time deserves the dignity to make a decent living.

About 80% of fast food workers are adults with families to support. For them it is rarely an "entry level job", but the only job they could get. Few of these people dreamed of a career slinging fast food garbage, but have had to settle for it.

Further, these fast food corporate giants are making money hand over fist, and could easily afford to pay their workers a livable wage. It is pure greedy exploitation, nothing less.
