Without 'fast food' people might have to make 'healthy' choices, rather than salty, greasy globs of high-calorie, low nutritious food!!

"Shaniqua Davis, 20, lives in the Bronx with her boyfriend, who is unemployed, and their 1-year-old daughter."

Seems the problem stems from 'lack of planning'.

She is attempting to support a baby AND a boyfriend, when she obviously isn't able to take care of HERSELF.

This is not anyone's fault but her own.

Hopefully these greedy liberal whiners are fired; they are trying to bully their way into getting money they haven't earned.

If you don't like the pay scale at your current place of employment?....quit and go elsewhere. It really is that simple.

Wait until the immigration law passes and millions more 3rd peasants arrive. They will gladly work for minimum wage which will result in negro unemployment going higher.

Have you ever seen what fast food places hire. Can't even count change, can't get your order right and have no common sense. Then they want $15 an hour. Bulshitt! Most are dumber than a rock and most are failures to begin with.
No way I would pay an IDIOT $15 an hour. Go back to school morons!

I think their wage expectations are a little much but what many of these fast food and retail establishments expect in the way of scheduling availability alone is reason for a strike or the wage issue to be brought to light.

The problem with many entry level jobs is that it is tough to keep a second or third job because of scheduling conflicts. I know people full-time in these industries and they have to guarantee 24/7 availability for 30-35 hours a week to keep any benefits they might be getting. That's the killer. Every time somebody gets sick, has car trouble or a minor schedule change at one of their jobs they risk losing two jobs in one day along with pay.

I think both the wage expectations of the employees and the commitment expectations of the company are unrealistic. Entry level jobs are viewed as starter or part-time jobs but treated as full-time by the corporations.

Yep. Plenty of immigrant that need jobs.

However, apparently there are plenty of immigrants that ALREADY have McDonald jobs.... Chicago TV news showed a bunch of fast food picketers and the signs they were holding weren't even written in English!!!
