Pamela Flood, a Burger King employee living at the shelter with her three children. "$7.25 is not an option. We should be getting $15 an hour to maintain a living."

well gee, pam, while you thought it was fashionable to be spitting out your three kids, the people making fifteen dollars, and more per hour, were probably furthering their education to achieve that monetary status, that's the way it works.
you're making a career at a job that was designed for teenagers to make extra money after school.
now for the kicker, pam. if a fast food restaurant were to pay fifteen dollars per hour, do you honestly think they would keep you employed there? when the applicants that actually showed previous ambition show up, you're pretty much history. being in HR, that's how it works. you're always looking for the best.

One child,shame on de baby daddy. Two more children,shame on de baby momma for not using common sense. People dig their own holes with boo-hoo,poor- me tales of the cruel old world. She plotted her own course with Mr. Wonderfull so she should be sure the father/fathers are in the child support system to pay or sit in jail. We don't owe her $15.00 an hour to support her bad choices.
