no body going to pay $25.00 for a burger, so the fast food morons better starting looking for a better job, get some job skills study economics so they get a picture of how things work in the real world.

Get an education , some new improved job skills and even a dumb black or wet back moron can get a better job with more pay for more skills.

You don't take a job at a fast food joint to support you and your family. you take that job as a stepping stone referral for a better paying job with more responsibility and job skills.

this is not rocket science.

As a kid in chicago I shoveled snow in the winter, mowed grass in summer ,delivered news papers, then when I was 16 I got a job in a grocery store stocking shelves, bagging groceries, brining in shopping carts which I did until school ended and I graduated.

The point is I was always looking for the next step the next job opportunity.

I joined the USAF after high school got a college degree, great training great duty stations.

After 4 years in USAF I got jobs in the world and grew in ability, skills took more advanced training on my own at my own expense and became a first class problem solver making lots of money for my company and myself.

Never on welfare always paid my way trained others who worked with me to do the same.

So pull your head out of your racist rear end and see America in 2013.

there are Russians and other peoples from all over the world here in America cause there are no jobs in Russia and those other countries but there are here.

In fact those people from all over the world are out hustling and taking the jobs the fast food workers and you should be out applying for instead of whining about wages.

You and all those fast food workers just have to get off the couch and go get one then you too can stop whining and join the real world.

Actually an economist. Never studied racism in college or graduate school.

But do understand the ramifications of increasing wages beyond an industry norm or standard.

Fast food workers need to understand or realize there are lots of jobs in the industry at minimum wage but only a very few jobs at $ 15.00 per hour,

So where will the rest of you be working and whining for more when and if you get your wish and the burger joint closes because of lack of business because no one on the planet surface thinks a burger & fries are worth $25.00???

Won't buy my grandchildren a $25.00 happy meal.....

For that money I will take them to a real restaurant for real food.

Get a life.
