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

    It's been a little over a year since fast-food workers walked off the job. Once again, on Thursday, December 5, workers plan to strike in 100 cities across the country. They are seeking higher wages.

    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.
    Just maybe I'll apply when it becomes reality.

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

    HOW DARE THEY?!

      Speaking to the topic generally, and not specifically to fast food workers...

      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?

        Easy - raise prices until it can be paid.  Of course, the new wage will not provide a living after prices go up, but that's OK.  Just start a new cycle again.
