Fast-Food Workers to Strike in 100 Cities on Thursday, December 5
December 4, 2013 by Kiri Tannenbaum |

Strikers want to increase their hourly wages from $7.50 $15.00 an hour. Since many available jobs are in this field, maybe it's not so far fetched.

How dare workers demand to be able to survive on their salary?

How do you feel about jobs that just are not worth "living wage" rates?
Surely you understand such jobs exist? Bar backs, kitchen closers, errand boys, etc.
If an employer can legitimately, (not greedily), only afford $30 p/hr labor costs, would you be ok with only two jobs created instead of four? Two workers get paid and two get left out in the cold?
Since over 90% of employers are small businesses - not all evil big greedy corporate types - and really do have limited payroll dollars - how do you accommodate the workers that lose their jobs so the employer can pay a living wage for however many employees his payroll dollars will support?
