That's why Nazicrats like O'dummy make so many bad decisions.
That's why America is in the crapper.
It's mentally ill Nazicrats like you that can't figure out anything except how to turn on the propaganda channel every night.
You know that propaganda is targeted at a fifth grade reading level. You know that, right?
That's about where I place you.

I hope they all go out of business, nothing but trash food.

Growing up my parents but a container of ice water on the kitchen table to go with our meals, I continue with this same example.

No soda or koolade.

This reminds me of the good old days, with good old slave labor wages. Why should I care about some poor slob who can't earn enough to feed himself or his family? Why should I have to pay a few more cents to feed my fat face with artery-blocking garbage? Who cares about a living wage for some other schmuck when I can gorge myself into an early death at bargain rates? Isn't that the what a "real" American stands for?
GREED IS GOOD!(At least in the short run.)

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.
You make valid points; while I cannot abide employees in entry level jobs whining about wages, I do agree that employers should not ask them to be "on call" at all hours of the day and night.

The SEIU is taking a page right out of Hugo Chavez' play book. Americans seem to be embracing our future as a Leftwing Totalitarian dictatorship. Our poor kids won't even know what they missed.
