I wonder if these people will have a job when they return to work?

Not showing up for work or walking off the job in most of these places is usually a pink slip....or it should be!

You must not know your rights at all, typical of a person that talks negativly of people making a living wage. You can't be fired for striking, it's against the law DUH
