And HOW MUCH will the UNION TAKE from people's paychecks after they unionize ?

Bigger paycheck, but it shrinks a little after the UNION DUES are taken out of their checks.

And did you read her other KFC job ended because it CLOSED down?

I've seen Arby's, KFC & Brown's Chicken close down in my area and that is BEFORE anyone started asking for more money.

What will she do if her current KFC closes down? But go ahead and DEMAND to get paid 100% more for the same job.

The American dream and the liberal dream are two different things. To a liberal six child credits on taxes and a new EBT card is the American dream.
