Who's the idiot that told them to strike.....Unions are thing of the past.

Ask your UNION LEADER (oxy-moron) why they get DOUBLE PENSION & DOUBLE ANNUITY while members sit at home.

Right to work is the way to go!

KFC? 8 years?

Supposedly she is a nursing student - so why complain NOW? After 8 years and when she is on her way to a better paying job? Um, that's what people have to do to get more pay - advance themselves.

"We're the ones who run the store...."

Yah, I think I know who is behind this.

If they run things then why not start their own fried chicken franchise and "run" it? Then they can give employees all over the country and elsewhere raises and benefits and healthcare and whatever else people who fry chicken think they deserve.

this isn't a career job that even needs a union. it's always been high school teens & retirees looking to make a few extra bucks. not so sure i'd want food cooked/served by those who want to be long term union workers @ a fast food joint.

it also means once the union gets a hold of your paycheck, your $7.75 an hour turns to $6.

The fast food "jobs" were designed in the early '60s to be after school/summer jobs for teen agers. It gave them an intro to a work ethic and some responsibility with money. The franchise food explosion was based on that.

But some terminal dodos thought of it as a career choice and now want to buy a house in the burbs for flipping roach patties.

If you unionize these places, watch the prices go sky high and then in a few years they'll have to close down because the company can't afford the costs of doing business with union workers.
Ask Hostess why they shut down. Ask the car companies why they needed to be bailed out.
