Fast food workers demanding 15 dollars an hour? What a joke.

Tell me, why should I have to pay taxes to support the welfare state? Why should I HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR MISTAKES???

If you cannot afford to have children, THEN DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!

Sterilize all people on welfare. Problem solved immediately....

Did you see the footage of the 'protesters"?
Most were SEUI Union thugs and not fast food workers.
Tragically, if the SEUI got it's way and many of the workers had their hours reduced or lost their jobs as a direct result the SEIU could not care less.

It was just another March for Union Greed.

Yep. I want to pay $20 for a burger now. Lets unionize the fast food industry.

How about growing up and getting an adult job? Leave the introductory jobs to the kids that want pocket money.

Want $15 an hour? WORK FOR IT!!! Start in a factory and work your way up.

This is what is wrong with society today. I WANT I WANT I WANT.

LOSERS!!!

Get a system in place whereby only legal U.S workers can be employed anywhere and the working wage will become realistic without the need for protest,with the new oil finds in nth Dakota staff were scarce at McDonalds,they were offering a hiring bonus of a flat screen T.V and $15 per hour ,the menu food cost the same as the rest of the U.S.

The minimum wage should be a living wage. Businesses only care about profits not about their workers. People have needs, their not going to work for free or for cheap, those days are long gone. If you want someone to do your dirty work, it's going to cost you.

Not if you get a bunch of Mexicans to do it for $5.00 per hour.
