Some of these jerks have already put their pubic hair in people's food. That's the type of civil disobedience dopehead twits promise us. Thankfully, we have better surveillance systems now and we can catch them and put them in prison.

Um, how do you know that?

And, why would you lower yourself to eat fast food slop in the first place?

The best way to deal with this promise is civil boycott.

Everyone wins when the fast food industry goes under.

Stuff is basically cheap poison.

That's the spirit.

Put all the cheap poison burger and taco pushers out of business.

Then them unemployed fast food workers won't be able to make trouble about getting $15 an hour.

These fast food workers do have a point, working should pay at least as much as welfare.

I can see it now.

$15 an hour burger flippers-

$15 burgers-

They'll have lots of employees and few customers.

What a brilliant strategy

I see fast food changes cutting employees and closing stores. If passes the companies will probably make all employees have a diploma and pass a drug test or even a back ground check.

And of course, their is the usual "LaToya mentioned in the article - with 4 kids - that complains she doesn't have enough money for diapers.

Heres a hint LaToya - keep you legs shut and then that wouldn't be a problem.

No, they will not cut employees (except those that want $15 ph) Illegal aliens work cheap...and they can't gripe cause they might get deported. That's the American Way, it's a tradition. Remember Ludlow.

Women in the fast food industry are the abusers of human rights. They are snide backbiters, who will do anything to undermine their coworkers, especially males. Young women have rejected learning common cleanliness and this carries over to the fast food industry. They don't know how to properly clean utensils and pots, which are commonly greasy with a buildup of caked food. Anyone showing them how to clean properly is seen as a threat and they will undermine that worker. The doper generations have destroyed the world by rejecting the wisdom of their elders. Women given delusions of moving up a management ladder in fast food abuse and harass new employees to give themselves some weird self-perception of power and effectiveness. Managing these creepy power mad women is a chore most cannot handle. The workplaces must be kept cheap labor and union free, else no one will be able to fire these female maniacs.

These are the same people that can't even count change. Screw up your order. Talk about being overpaid! Get a real job, IDIOTS. You people don't deserve $15 an hour let alone $10 an hour.
You get paid what your worth $5.75 an hour.

If you carry the same shytty, eliteist, holier-than-thou attitude IRL as you do on Toothpix, I gaurantee people are doing stuff to your food, regardless of where you choose to dine.
